Two men have been arrested in the Parsa district of southern Nepal on a charge of murdering their sister’s boyfriend.
Pritam Patel (30) and Uttam Patel (28), both residents of Bishrampur rural municipality-5, have been charged with the murder of Raj Kumar Thakur of the same area.
According to DSP Prahlad Karki, the duo murdered Thakur in Nagawa, Birgunj Metropolitan City-16 in Parsa. The Patel brothers own a tailor shop in Birgunj.
Police claim they confessed to killing Raj Kumar Thakur as they discovered he had an affair with their sister.
Following the murder, the duo allegedly placed the victim’s body in a sack, rode a motorcycle to India’s Raxaul railway station (Na 38 Pa 4395), and left it there. After the suspects revealed this information, the police launched an operation in collaboration with Indian authorities to recover the body.
Meanwhile, relatives of the victim have marched to Birgunj from Bishrampur in Bara, demanding strict punishment for the perpetrators.
