Myagdi, 28 Oct 2014: Four sisters of Kaulegaunda of Beni Municipality-9 have become helpless with the death of their parents due to hornet sting.
The girls lost their parents and a brother to the incident that occurred in a jungle near their house on October 18. Their father Dala Puri, 55, mother Shiva Puri 45 and brother Ashis Puri,12, died after they were stung by hornets.

Eldest daughter Jenisa is a seventh grader at the Rastriya Secondary School Neptechaur while her sisters read in grade five, three and one respectively at the local Narabuddhi Salleri Primary Secondary School.
The Puri family is not well-off. The girls have been unable to perform the 13th day death rituals of their parents and brother due to financial crisis. A local club has started a fund raising campaign in the name of victims’ family and so far Rs 150,000 has been collected. It has been planning to hand over the assistance amount to them soon. The club has appealed to one and all to extend support from their respective sides to the bereaved family.
