Members of Bhutanese community in South Australia gathered today to discuss about the funeral of late Ghimirey.

The meeting also discussed about the future of her four children who are currently under the care of Gauri Giri, a social activist belonging to the same community.

Representatives from the Integrated Humanitarian Settlement Strategy (IHSS) of the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC), Migrant Resource Centre of South Australia and Family SA also participated in the meeting.

Preliminary investigation reports carried out by the police stated that the case is likely to be a suicide but details could be known only after the post-mortem.

Laxman Yogi, the case worker for late Ghimire informed BNS that the deceased had been under special health surveillance for her mental abnormality where two hospitals had been rendering services for her treatment. She was also receiving better Centre link benefits due to the same disability.

‘In Australia, the case worker usually helps in the settlement program of a humanitarian migrant for the first four months, but she was provided this service indefinitely,’ said Yogi.

Yogi further informed that she had been receiving counseling quite regularly at her own residence at Marion with the help of an interpreter.
