Nepali worker killed in industrial accident in South Korea


KATHMANDU – Gyanendra Rai of Udayapur district working at a cutting industry died in an accident in South Korea on October 26. He had arrived in Korea under the Employment Permit System (EPS) from Nepal and had been working at the factory for the past three and half years.

Rai died after a goods carrying automobile called ‘chhigechha’ driven by a Korean worker hit him during work at around 10 am on Monday, Tilak Pun, one of Rai’s coworkers, said. The industry is located at a place called Khyangsan, Hapchhangun. A critically wounded Rai was rushed to a nearby hospital but the doctors at the hospital declared him dead on arrival. His body is being kept at the hospital’s morgue.

The Embassy of Nepal in South Korea has said that it has received informal information about this and will complete the necessary process for repatriating Rai’s body to his family in Nepal.
