Sept 21: One refugee in Morang-based Sanischare camp, who was critically injured in attack from his own brother, died due to lack of adequate finance back-up to push him for head surgery, which its claimed has been expensive and complicated in nature.
Police source informed BNS that Birkha Bahadur Tamang, 22, of Sector D/1-04 stabbed his own brother Dhan Bir, 35, by random physical assaults with bamboo sticks and rod.
Dhan Bir, who sustained severe injuries on head, was rushed to BP Koirala Hospital in Dharan, but to no avail.
According to his relatives, they were compelled to bring back Dhan Bir to temporary hut in Sanischare camp following the advice of medical assistants and doctors involved in his treatment at Dharan-based hospital.
Dhan Bir, who was discharged in critical condition, died in his own hut after doctors at the Dharan-based hospital were said to have cited the head injury as intricate and expensive too.
According to police source at the Urlabari Police post, they have already arrested Birkha Bahadur, who has admitted the crime.
Confessing the crime, Birkha has said the incident occurred while he was in a drunken state. However, the truth behind Birkha’s motive to kill his own brother is not yet known.
