Prithvi Bhandari of Tanahun was cremated in Switzerland

Zurich. A Nepali man who died while undergoing treatment at Zurich University Hospital in Switzerland on June 8 was buried on Monday. Prithvi Bhandari Chhetri, 47, of Tanahu Khairenitar was buried in Zurich.

Chhetri, who has been living in Afolten in the Zurich canton for the past decade, has been in the ICU for five weeks.

According to Shubh Elmer Lama, president of NRNA Switzerland, he was admitted to a regional hospital with liver problems. “When I arrived at the ICU, he was unconscious. We had already informed his family about his condition,” said Lama.

NRNA Switzerland had expressed interest after receiving information that regional hospitals were not well integrated in the Nepali community.

Mahendra Singh Chhetri, brother of the deceased, had arrived in Switzerland from Japan last year to attend the funeral. Chairman Lama said that they helped him in the paperwork process to bring him from Japan to Switzerland. “According to the wishes of the family, the funeral was held in Switzerland in the presence of the family members. The NRN has taken the initiative to make the funeral process free of cost,” she said.

The deceased has two sons. Mahendra Bhandari Chhetri, brother of the deceased, informed that both the sons working in Dubai, UAE have now reached Nepal.

“Even if we have moved to Dharan, our family will be able to reach Tanahun and complete the whole process of our brother,” he said, adding that he would return to Nepal with his brother’s belongings in three days.
