BIRATNAGAR, April 2: With eyes full of dreams Tulasi Rajbanshi, 23, of Biratnagar-16 had reached the District Police Office, Morang. He thought if he got selected for temporary police that will open the doors for him to many job opportunities in the future as well. But unfortunately, he left the world on Saturday, before he could fulfill her dreams.

Following the advice of his family members, he had come to the district headquarters to apply for temporary police. His parents have been stunned by the heartbreaking news of their son's death. “It is hard for me to believe that my fit and healthy son is dead now,” said Babu Panchu Rajbanshi, 60, the father of the deceased. He is now feeling guilty for advising his son to apply for a temporary police job. Though he wanted to conduct a grand funeral ceremony of his son, he does not have enough money for that which has added to his miseries.

“No one can save you, when the gods are after you,” said Panchu.  The economic condition of the Rajbanshi family is miserable as they have been living in unregistered land.

Yogendra Singh, spokesperson for the District Police Office, Morang, said that there is no provision of relief as the deceased died during the process of selection. “Maybe the government would have taken responsibility if he had been selected. But unfortunately, the mishap occurred before that,” said Singh.

Similarly, Tol Bahadur Tharu, 29, of Baijapur, Banke, died a mysterious death on the same day in Nepalgunj. As informed by Tek Prasad Rai, Chief of District Police Office, Banke, Tharu was doing sit-ups after running for one kilometer, when he became unconscious and collapsed. Though he was immediately taken to the hospital, he succumbed during the course of treatment.

As informed by police, the dead body of the deceased will be handed to the family members after post-mortem.
