A three-month old girl of Puthauttargnga rural municipality-10 in the district died from diarrhoea, said health workers at the District Public Health Office.
The deceased, daughter of Shyam Bahadur BK, was suffering from the disease for the past five days, and died on Sunday for want of timely treatment, said public health officer Shiva Sarki. The nearby health post is hours away from the village of the deceased.
The information was known later as the village is rural and lacks any reliable means of communication.
Many other villagers are also suffering from cold and diarrhea, said Sarki.
