The massive earthquake of 7.9 magnitude that hit Nepal on Saturday has left more than 1,807 people dead and 4,721 injured.

The quake has killed 70 in Rasuwa, 57 in Kavre, 40 in Gorkha, 35 in Dhading, 10 in Okhaldhunga, nine in Makwanpur, six in Sunsari and two each in Bhojpur and Solukhumbu.

Nearly 550 Indians have been evacuated by the IAF from earthquake-hit Nepal.
In the wake of the disaster, the government has declared national crisis and established a fund of 500 million Nepali rupees (about $4 million) for the reconstruction of the damaged infrastructures.

The tremor also shook India, Tibet, Bangladesh and Pakistan.

At least 36 people — 25 in Bihar, eight in Uttar Pradesh and three in West Bengal — were killed and more than 100 injured in India.

The calamity is said be the worst in over 80 years of Nepal’s history.
