Nawalparasi, July 5
As many as 83 migrant workers from Nawalparasi died on foreign lands in the last four years.
SAMI, a non-government organisation working in the field of foreign employment in Kawasoti, made the data public recently.
As per the data recorded from the year 2014 to 2018 by the organisation, as many as eighty persons were male while three were female. Of the deceased, eighty one bodies were brought to Nepal while the bodies of two persons are yet to be brought to Nepal.
Counsellor of the organisation Ranjana Lamsal said that the number of such deaths might be more as the data included only cases that were reported at Safe Immigration and Information Centre, Kawasoti.
It is said that most of the people going for foreign employment are from Kawasoti, Madhyabindu, Debchuli and Gaindakot, among other places, of Nawalpur. Sharma said people going for foreign employment did not get justice due to lack of valid documents.
