The bus was heading towards Pokhara from Dharan when it veered off the road and fell 10 metres down from the road, police said.

Two passengers were killed and 32, including the bus driver, are being treated at nearby hospitals, they said.

The condition of nine of those injured is said to be serious and they were taken to Pokhara for further treatment.

The actual cause of the accident is not known yet, police said.

Road accidents in Nepal are quite common due to the poor road infrastructure across the country, which majorly comprises mountainous terrain.
