‘Patrakar Bajhe’ ended his life in Concord, NH


Ram Bahadur Gurung, 73, popularly known as “Patrakar Bajhe” originally from Dagapela Bhutan ended his life himself yesterday in his rented apartment in Concord, NH. He was resettled in Concord, some three months ago from Sanischare camp, Nepal.

While in camp, late Ram Gurung used to socialize with his elderly peers, read news from the local vernaculars to his peers and discuss about the ongoing resettlement as well as of Bhutan.

“This is the first ever case of suicidal death in New Hampshire and we are really bewildered and tormented with this loss of life, said Tika Acharya, the executive director of Bhutanese Community of New Hampshire.

His funeral is slated for 4pm today.
