SURKHET, Nov 9: Three years after joining the Nepal Army, Rabin Rana Magar of Bheriganga Municipality-12, Chinchu had finally reached home for Bhai Tika from Rukum West on Thursday morning on the day of Laxmi Puja. After breakfast, Rabin left with his sister in a scooter and headed for the district headquarters, Birendranagar, to shop goods for Bhai Tika.

The scooter (Karnali Province 0200 Pa 7669) was hit by a truck (Karnali Province 02-001 Pa 0124) which was heading to Nepalgunj from Jumla near Thulo Byureni of Birendranagar-11. Rabin, who was on the way for shopping with his sister, died on the spot while Rani was seriously injured. Rani, who was in the ICU and undergoing treatment at Karnali Province Hospital, also died at 11 PM on Sunday.

The whole area of ​​Bheri Ganga is in shock after the death of the brother-sister duo. The victim’s family have blocked the Ratna Highway stating that the truck driver and the committee have not come in contact.

According to Renu Acharya Dhakal, Deputy Mayor of Bheriganga Municipality, Rabin, 26, got married on Dashain by eloping. However, as his uncle-in-law’s death had not been a year, the married couple were not allowed in the home. Therefore, he had kept his wife in a room in Chinchu. “After three years, he was finally going to put Tika from his sister’s hand and went for shopping with his sister for the same purpose. However, something unimaginable happened,” Dhakal said.

Rabin's post was in Nawalpur. He had come to Rukum West Battalion for training. Similarly, Rani used to teach at Chinchu Boarding School in Chinchwa and had a master's degree in English.
