The Bangladesh embassy in Nepal has opened a ‘help desk’ for its nationals after a massive earthquake reportedly killed many in the Himalayan nation.

Bangladesh foreign ministry, however, said there had been no reports of any of its nationals being injured in the deadly quake.

Ambassador Mashfee Binte Shams told that the main tourist attractions in the capital Kathmandu, Thamel and Pokhara were the worst hit, but they were not getting “much information” about damage and casualties.

“We’re working and in close touch with local authorities. We have opened a help desk,” she said, urging all to contact the desk if necessary.

She said Bangladeshis mostly travel Nepal as a tourist destination. “There are roughly 100 families (Bangladeshi) living here. But they all are safe”.

“So far, we don’t have information on casualties,” she said. The ambassador said anyone can contact in her own number +9779851039352.

First Secretary Khan Md Moinul Hossen can be contacted on +9779808184014, while First Secretary Shamima Choudhury can be contacted on +9779808765071 for any support, according to the foreign ministry.
