Jacksonville (Florida), July 27: Tika Adhikari, 65, father of Hari Lal Adhikari, who was shot and killed, confirmed that his son was gunned-down during an apparent robbery Sunday night at the Stonemont Village Apartments on Jacksonville’s Southside.
He was robbed of his wallet and a cell phone by a gunman who shot him at point blank range and then walked off.

An American media has written that the victim is at least the 19th immigrant slain in Jacksonville in the past five years where most of the killings have occurred during robberies.
The Jacksonville.com uploaded the update on Adhikari shooting at 1:00 pm local time.

The website quoted Karen Croke, a staff at World Relief refugee resettlement agency, which brought Adhikari and his family to Jacksonville five months ago, as saying that it was disheartening to see someone escape from horrendous living conditions, only to meet with such violence in his new home.

According to this portal, Adhikari was shot in the parking lot of the complex and received a gun at his chest before he shouted for help.

The victim was working at a nearby Wal-Mart for about two weeks and was attending Florida Community College at Jacksonville to learn English.

His family had relied on him for financial support and to help them settle in Jacksonville, his distraught father said through a translator wrote the Jacksonville.com.

  1. So sad, news for me. How long we have to take that types of torture in our life. We are also human and we need humanatarian behave. We couldn’t get any sustinable life in this world. Firstly we are illegal immigrants where we were born. Secondly have to take so many stress, tension and hactic in our life to return in our lovely country. That was also not success. Now, help from UHHCR slowly resettlement in any third country and there will be not our life secure. Why GOD punish only for us. Why we couldn’t get human right? why? why nobody take any action about our government for providing our human right. We are also human in this world, why onle behave like animals for us. I request to US government to secure our life and to do behave humanatarian and pls. I reqeust to concern Human Right Organization to secure our life in third country.

    Requesting for secure life for every Bhutanese.

    Thanks and best regards

  2. OOh! God we search security for our life but it is away from us.. It is so sad why God creates such demonds who could pluk away the blooming bud. It is so sad that what kind of mind cannot spend for a wallet and a cell phone rather than a Gun which can take away the life of 21 years Hari lal who could be the dream of the world. So I pray to God saying `Create such power to shoot the bullet to his/her own heart when he/she is ready to shoot other. Concern Human Right Organization please secure our life from hunters in third country.

  3. We all the Bhutanese in Newzealand are so sorry to hear the news about the murder of our community people hari lal. The new hope of the family has been lost by most of the Bhutanese n they r now scare to go all over the world. They have stress all the time leaving native land being refugee for 18 yrs n have a hope to settle in new place but was not safe. We pray god to provide peace in the world n let Gautam Buddha take rebirth in world to bring peace once again in the world and let it last forever.

    We express sympathy to the family n let his soul remain peace in heaven .

  7. This is a very sad news for all the bhutanese refugee. We all the bhutanese have the alternative to settle in third countries because of the uncompleted and unsuccessful talk between Nepal and Bhutan. This is our option after we not get hope to back our native country. I personally would like to say heartfelt condolence mr.adhikari’s family and may departed soul will remain in peace in heaven. I heard that bhutanese refugee who are doing process for the third countries are worrying about the sad news of florida. It is not a first time happen to hari adhikari, but so many bhutanese refugee were robbed and threatened in early days. sometime it happens unexpectively. People have to think about it and ask for secure of the bhutanese refugee in third countries.
