Shot Nepali succumbs in US

KATHMANDU: A Nepali, who sustained life threatening bullet injuries, breathed his last in Boston in the US, last Saturday. The deceased, Surendra Dangol, 40, hailing from Sankhu, Kathmandu, succumbed to his injuries while undergoing treatment at Boston Medical Centre. According to local media reports, Dangol, who was a clerk at Tedeschi Food Shop at Centre and Eliot Streets, was shot by a gunman. A customer, who had walked in to buy batteries at the store had attempted to save him, but in vain. "I looked behind the counter and saw the clerk lying," the customer said, declining to give his name. "I thought the guy was having a seizure. I didn't see any blood right away." The store is said to be owned by a Pakistani. Dangol had been preparing to take his spouse and a nine-year old daughter to the US.

Meanwhile, Boston Police Department made public video stills of the suspect and the getaway vehicle, a white four-door Dodge or Chrysler sedan. The police, however, maintained that although it looked like a robbery, no cash or lottery tickets appeared to be missing from the store.
