One shot in Sanischare


One exiled Bhutanese sustained serious injuries Friday evening while he was shot at his back in Sanischare Bhutanese Refugee Camp by two unidentified people.

The victim is identified as Tara Bir Kadariya, 30, of the same camp. According to BNS correspondent in Sanischare, Kadariya, who sustained critical injury, is hospitalized at the BP Koirala Institute of Health and Sciences in Dharan.

He was targeted with gun fire at the entrance gate of refugee camp in Shanishchare last night, police said.  Two persons in the motorcycle had opened fire at him.

Until the filing of this report, neither police arrested any one in connection nor any group has owned up responsibility to the incident.


  1. Very sad to hear this news. I urge the UNHCR, IOM, Nepal Government and all other agencies concerned to maintain peace and full security in the Bhutanese Refugee Camps as far as applicable and assist the victim in his treatment. Also, it will be the obligation of the UNHCR and the Nepal Government to launch an independent inquiry into this incident and punish the culprit to the fullest extent possible, and implement the recommendations setforth by the investigation commission into effect so as to maintain sustained peace and harmony in the Refugee Camps in Nepal.
