[ZESTCaste] Nepal: Dalit killed for intruding kitchen fireplace in hotel

Dalit killed for intruding kitchen fireplace in hotel

JUMLA, Dec 14: A dalit has been thrashed to death in Jubitha-4,
Kalikot for intruding into the kitchen fireplace of an "upper-caste"

Manbir Sunar, 31, had gone to Jas Bahadur Shahi´s Dhara Hotel next
door to buy cigarettes after dinner Saturday evening.

He went to the burning stove to light a cigarette but two Thakuris
drinking alcohol on a table nearby felt offended. The inebriated duo
pounced upon him and thrashed him mercilessly. "He breathed his last
while being taken to District Hospital Sunday morning," his
heart-broken father Bir Bahadur said.

The assailants Min Bahadur of Jubitha-8 and Dip Bahadur of Jubitha-9
were old acquaintances. But the duo didn´t need any other reason to
mortally thrash Sunar.

"Preliminary investigations show there was no previous animosity among
them and Sunar was beaten due as Dalits are deemed untouchables,"
Chief District Officer (CDO) of Kalikot Durga Dutta Dhakal said.

Doctor at the District Hospital Rabindra Khadka said the deceased had
wounds all over his body with dysfunctional kidneys. He said report
from the Central Laboratory in Kathmandu will provide the details but
the hospital stated that he died after being unable to discharge urine
following injury on his genitals.

Khallagad Police Post has arrested the duo and CDO Dhakal said the
Shahis would be tried for murder. Meanwhile, various dalit right
organizations and activists have condemned the incident.
