BARDIBAS: A single monkey has bitten over 100 people in two VDCs in northern part of Mahottari district during the last three days.
Locals near the highway in Bardibas and Gauribas VDCs said that they were at the receiving end of the monkey menace. Sujan Khatiwada, a local at Gauribas-2, said that over 40 persons were hurt in the attack.
Similarly, at least 60 persons were injured at main bazaar area in Bardibas in the attacks of monkeys, said businessman Shambhu Bhattarai.
However, the injured are likely to suffer further as the Bardibas Hospital has no treatment services to the victims. Acting chief of the hospital, Radheshyam Jha, has admitted that it lacks anti-rabies vaccinesas the hospital receives only 20 vaccines in a month. Area Police Office, Bardibas, said that the frantic monkey has not been caught yet.
