BAITADI, Oct 29: Narendra Bahadur Chand, a permanent resident of Hatairaj-2, Gurkelika, who had left for India in search of work at an early age of 15 years, has come into contact with his family members through social network after a gap of 30 years.
While Chand was in India seeking for a job, a foreigner tricked him by promising him a job in Dubai. Chand was abandoned in Pakistan by the foreigner.
Chand said that he wanted to return to Nepal but was left marooned. He came into contact through a student Rajendra Prasad Fulara studying at Balon Medical College, Quetta, Pakistan.
Chand then contacted his nephews— Lalit Singh Chand and Shankar Bahadur Chand—through telephone. He had posted in Facebook that he is in Pakistan since 30 years and desperately wants to return to Nepal.
His brothers, Rana Bhandur and Ganja Bahadur who used to serve in Nepal Army have now retired. The family is very happy to have Narendra into contact after so many years.
Lalit said, “I am very pleased to have found my brother. We had lost hope to find him a long time ago.”
Chand went to Pithoragarh, India at an age of 15 years. Six months later he reached Mumbai.
Slowly, he started losing contact with his family. Some 10 years later, he wrote a letter to his family from Karachi, Pakistan.
Chanda, in the letter, had written that his visa has expired and he is leaving for Lahore and had also provided a telephone number. His family claimed that they could not contact him on the number.
