LALITPUR, Dec 24: Bir Bahadur Sunuwar’s brother Chandra Sunuwar started showing signs of mental illness during the last few years. Initially, the family from Surkhet tried to treat him through the help of shamans. But when that did not work, they went to a local health post. Officials there suggested them to take Chandra to a mental hospital. It would be very costly to come and stay in the only mental hospital they knew, Mental Hospital Lagankhel. However, since the patient’s illness was increasing by the day, it became very crucial for them to take it to the hospital.
