The newly-married couple of Rupa Thapa Magar met with an accident while going home from Rupa’s parental home. They were returning home after their first visit of Rupa’s parental home after marriage. The tragic event that happened after 11 days of the marriage took the life of Rupa Thapa and her husband Mahesh Pun is struggling in life-threatning condition in the hospital.
Rupa Thapa had acted in a Magar film titled ‘Larfu’ (Pachayuri) and was also a radio jockey in various FM stations in Palpa.
Rupa and Mahesh were returning home from Palpa to Gulmi in a scooter. The scooter Lu 37 Pa 3090 crashed with a car (SUV) number Lu 1 Cha 7256 coming from opposite direction at Myalunga of Syanjga. The couple were seriously injured in the accident and were rushed to the local hospital – Lumbini Medical College Hospital in Palpa. Rupa was pronounced dead and Mahesh is being treated in the hospital.
It is a very sad news for the Magar film industry. I wish Rupa Thapa soul rest in peace and wish Mahesh’s speedy recovery.
