Sept 09: The funeral processing of late KB Khadka has been performed today amidst thousands of people paying their last tribute.

According to our Beldangi correspondent, an estimated 10,000  plus Bhutanese refugees including representatives of various organisations, local people, journalists, rights activists, among others attended the function.

Meanwhile, the all party meeting of the stakeholders including camp management committee was underway in Beldangi-II camp , while this story was being compiled, to discuss the murder of KB Khadka in a broad day light inside the UNHCR-administered camp yesterday.

Earlier today, the camp secretary of of Beldangi-II Extension, Ganapati Adhikari, called for indefinite shutdown of Beldangi camps until the killers are brought under security control.

In a statement issued, Adhikari has asked the government of Nepal to provide security to the camp residents. (Download Adhikari’s statement)

“I ask all in camps to shutdown everything including schools to demand security and punish the killer of Khadka”, said Adhikari.

Meanwhile, the Birat-led Communist Party of Bhutan (MLM) condemned the murder citing such acts to defame the democratic struggle in Bhutan. (Download CPB(MLM)’s Statement)

“IOM and UNHCR are responsible for increasing act of decapitation of leaders in exiles by fragmenting the exile community according to their best interest”, said the party’s exile coordination committee in-charged alias Raktim.

Youth Friendly Center of the camp also organized an emergency meeting this morning to make out the probable protest programs against the murder.

  11. Dear Kul daju, Bhauju and all relatives,

    Our thoughts are with you as you mourn your loss. We’re sorry that we cannot be with you in person.

    K B Khadka was a kind and honorable man. His loyalty to Bhutanese society. I don’t think I ever heard K B Daju say an unkind word about anyone. His life disproves the saying: “nice guys finish last”.

    Even my 66 years old dad was shocked about his death. He said K B Daju was the only one deserving leader helping Bhutanese with whole heart.

    K B Daju enriched all Bhutanese’s lives. He was a good man. We all will miss him.
    Its a huge loss for Bhutanese society.

    Please accept our heart-felt condolences.

    The Family Members of
    Lt. Karna Bahadur Khadka.
    Bhutanese Refugee Camp
    Beldangi – III.
    Condolence:
     
    We the family members of Tika Ram Chapagai are shocked to hear the unexpected and untimely demise of Mr. K.B. Khadka, a Bhutanese political leader. It is indeed, deepest sorrow and irreparable loss of a resourceful citizen of Bhutan. He was a great asset for the newer generation of Bhutan. His decades long experience in different stages of political development in Bhutanese Refugee camps, any body would have been benefited, whoever had recorded his Testimony.
    His immense dream to return to own homesteads has snatched away suddenly within no minutes and has to rest in the foreign soil.
    We miss him enormously, We extend our heartfelt condolence to his bereaved family and relatives for this shocking loss. May the Almighty grant his near and dear ones the strength to bear this colossal grief.  We pray for his departed soul to rest in eternal peace in his heavenly abode.
     
     
    Once again we pray – “ May the departed soul rest in Peace”
    In Peace.
    In Peace.
