One kills self in KY; Another suicide-attempt survivor dies in NY


Ram Bahadur Thapa’s funeral is slated for Saturday at 5 p.m. after his dead body is returned from postmortem. Thapa in his 40s hung himself to death in a nearby tree just behind his new home at Bannon Crossings  Louisville, Kentucky two days ago.

SuicidesignRam had been missing from his home since three days, and his whereabouts  not known at home until a relative called the family on Thursday to say that Ram was not seen for two days and need to file a missing report.

He originally hailed from Neoly Bhutan and had lived in Beldangi-2 camp.

In another similar case early this week, Ganga Poudel died in a hospital in Buffalo, NY after six days in ICU treatment following an  incomplete suicide attempt she made by hanging in her apartment.

She attempted to finish herself when her  husband went out to pick his child from nearby school.

She is survived by three children and a husband. Nobody knows the cause for her attempted suicide as there was nothing to suspect of any wrongdoings in the family.

Causes of both the suicides were not immediately known.
