Nepali student found dead in IndiaThe body of the 19-year-old, who had been missing since February 26, was found 34 km from his accommodation in Sarjapur, Bengaluru.
A Nepali student, studying in India, was found dead on Sunday.
The body of Rohit Chandara, a local resident of Bajhang, was found in a well in Chandapura of India’s Bengaluru district.
Chandara was an undergraduate student at the Bangalore-based Christ University.
The body of the 19-year-old, who had been missing since February 26, was found 34 km from his accommodation in Sarjapur.
Chandara’s body was found unclothed, with blood coming out from the ears and mouth, said Khadka Chandara, the victim’s father. “Tree trunks and stones had been piled atop the body to prevent it from coming to the water’s surface,” Khadka added. “They killed him elsewhere and dumped the body in the well to hide it. My son was murdered.”
On the day of the incident, Chandara, who would normally remain at home after returning from college, had been taken out by three of his Indian friends, the victim’s father added.
After Chandara had not returned to his room until late at night, his friends were asked about his whereabouts. However, they denied having seen him or knowing where he was, said Deepak Khadka, Chandara’s neighbour.
The Karnataka Police have taken five people into custody under suspicion of their involvement in the crime.
The victim’s parents have been working as labourers in India for a long time, and had enrolled their children in schools in India.
They have demanded a thorough investigation of the case, claiming that their son was murdered.
