  1. Really the news is heart-touchy and sorrowful.we all are in sorrowful moment as all Bhutanese and Nepali family…let dead Jit Bdr soul remain peace in heaven and let almighty God bless his family and all relatives..this news really so…sad for all Bhutanese family…He will remain in our heart and memories…

  2. Upon hearing this sad news through bns.com, we the resettled Bhutanese in Cairns, Queensland Australia are deeply shocked and troubled because Mr. Pradhan was not old enough to die. He committed suicide for what reason? Nobody has the exact answer but the family has been bereaved in an unfamiliar place. Why was he not treated for depression when there was enough time in hand will remain mysterious until the final report is received. Anyway, we humbly request the catholic agency sponsoring this family for relentless support in particular and all resettled Bhutanese in general. Government should by now start investigation into such increasing cases of suicide. Above all, let the departed soul be rested in harmony and peace and the family be assisted.

  3. It;s really sorrowful to learn about the death of Jit B Pradhan and I am really sorry for his family members who are left behind submerged in extreme grief. I express my condolence to the bereaved family, relatives, friends and immediate neighbours at the irreparable loss suffered by them and pray the Almighty to give them courage to withstand the shock of this huge loss. May his soul rest in peace in Heaven.

    Hasta Pradhan
