RUKUM, Feb 2: A Nepali migrant worker was killed in Malaysia after reportedly being stabbed by his Nepali room partner with a knife.
The deceased has been identified as Ananta Ukhira, 24, of Bafikot-1 in Rukum. Gopal Pariyar from Salyan stabbed Ukhira on Monday night inside their apartment over a minor dispute, said Ukhira’s relative Bal Bahadur BK.
Ukhira, who had gone to Malaysia three years ago, had been working there illegally after he left his company six months ago, he said. Meanwhile, the deceased’s family has urged the government to repatriate Ukhira’s body and punish the guilty. RSS
