Two Bhutanese refugees commit suicide

Two Bhutanese refugees living in the UN-run refugee camp in Damak of Jhapa have committed suicide on Saturday.

According to the police, 50-year-old Jas Bahadur Tamang of sector D 4 and 44-year-old Kul Bahadur Acharya of sector A 2 of Beldangi refugee camp took their own lives today.

The reason behind the two committing suicide has not been known.

Large number of Bhutanese refugees are currently being repatriated to third countries including U.S, Australia and Europe.

More than one hundred thousand ethnic Bhutanese of Nepali origin were evicted from Bhutan by the Druk regime about two decades ago.
