It is very sad ending of a couple in a road accident in Rukum. The couple was:
- Newly married
- Young and promising
- Beautiful wife, handsome husband
- Both police inspectors. Having a very bright future.
In an accident on the Friday night, Police Inspectors Nabin Shrestha and his new wife police inspector Anita Pradhan were killed. The newly married were returning to report to the job at the police station right after getting married at home.
It was heart breaking to see the following marriage photo of the beautiful couple and know that they are no longer alive to celebrate the life together. They might have made plans of going to honeymoon, raising family and having a great life ahead. But alas, the dream got wiped away by an accident that might have been prevented if there were better rules at the road.
The sad incident occurred on the road while a vehicle Ga 1 Ja 4260 met with an accident at Ward No. 6 of Musikot Municipality. With the newly wed couple, five others were also killed.
According to the local police, police inspector Nabin Shrestha was the resident of Rukumkot. With Nabin and Anita Pradhan others who couldn’t survive in the accident were Janak Shah, Sudan Shrestha, Sher Bahadur Shrestha, Yamnuna Malla and Sudha Malla. The injured are being treated at the District hospital Rukum.
The ill-fated vehicle had fell about 100 meter from the road.
Here is another photo of the bride Anita Pradhan in her wedding saree.
In her police officer uniform, Anita’s photo:
It is a sad incident and the police should investigate the incident and find the cause of the accident. If it was caused by the carelessness of a person, that person should be punished and make sure that no such incidents occur in the future. If it was caused by the flaw in the rule or regulation, such regulation should be amended.
I wish the departed souls rest in peace.
