Chitwan, November 16:

One Lal Bahadur Tamang, 52, of Jagatpur-4 was found dead inside a toilet of a detention centre at Kasara in Chitwan National Park yesterday.

The park authority had arrested him on November 11 on the charge of killing rhinos.

Acting conservation officer of the park, Ananath Baral, said Tamang had gone to bed after dinner on Tuesday night but was found dead hanging in the toilet the next morning.

Tamang’s family members have said they would file a lawsuit against the park administration charging them of torturing Tamang.

Brother-in-law of the deceased, Bir Bahadur Ghalan, said Tamang’s death was not a case of suicide but a planned murder. We are preparing to file a case against the park administration.

The park administration had called Ghalan to take away Tamang’s body.

Tamang hanged himself from ventilation in the toilet yesterday morning, the park officials said. His body has been brought to Bharatpur Hospital for post-mortem but his relatives were refusing to take it till late today.

The park administration handed over Rs 8,000 to Ghalan as expenses for last rites.
