At least 30 people, including a child, were killed in a bus accident in Nepal's Doti district on Saturday, officials said.

Fourteen other passengers were injured when the bus in which they were travelling veered off a narrow mountain road at around 2 am on Saturday.

The police and local residents rushed to the spot and rescued the injured passengers.

"The ill-fated bus (Na 4 Kh 3603) heading from Jaigad, Accham to Tikapur, Kailali skidded off the road nearly a kilometer down," The Himalayan Times reported.

"Police have suspected that the slippery road might have caused the accident," the newspaper said.
