Statement of Youth Organization of Bhutan sent to us by  the  president Rajan Giri.

Message of condolence

It is very disturbing and disheartening to witness the sudden and cowardice murder of Mr. K.B. Khadka on Sep 8, 2009. It is not only an irrecoverable loss to the Family but also a great and irreplaceple loss to the entire Bhutanese community. Mr Khadka was very helpful, man of courage, veteran refugee leader and a great social and human rights activist. He had been a strong voice for voiceless for the Bhutanese refugee community ever since the establishment of camps. He helped the people of all walks of life in the camps through his selfless and tireless service which indeed is imprinted in the heart of all Bhutanese refugees in Nepal and around the world.

At this grief moment, Youth Organization of Bhutan (YOB) prays his departed soul be rest peace in heaven and prays with the almighty to shower the strength and power to the bereaved family to cope up with this difficult situation.

YOB condemns this heinous, barbaric and cowardly act of criminals and urges all the concern authorities to apply all the possible measures to apprehend and punish the murderers and their mastermind with the fullest extent of law.

Similarly, the newly formed social organization of the resettled Bhutanese in Massachusetts, ‘Bhutanese Trust of Massacusetts'(BTM) has expressed its condolence to the bereaved family members of late K.B. Khadka and demanded stern action against those involved in the killing. Issuing a press release yesterday, the organization has urged IOM, UNHCR and other partner agencies to form an independent commission for the free and fair investigation of the incident.
Their condolence message sent to us by the president Hari Khanal, is as follows:

Press Release

We, the resettled Bhutanese in the US state of Massachusetts are deeply saddened to hear about the killing of former camp secretary of Bhutanese Refugee Camp, Beldangi II Extension in Eastern Nepal. The killing of former secretary Mr. K.B.Kharka is a heinous crime conducted by some of the criminal activists. It is a great loss to the Bhutanese community. We the resettled Bhutanese would like to express our heartfelt condolence to Late Kharka and request the bereaved family not to loose their hopes. We pray for the departed soul to remain in peace.

In fact, the incident is not a tolerable crime. We strongly condemns for conducting such a crime and request all the people in the camp to be united so that the criminals will not be escaped.

Similar incidents have been taking place in the Bhutanese Refugee Camps for the past few years. This clearly indicates that there is a group of criminals actively involved in killing the people time and again. We believe that these criminals have always been protected and encouraged by some of the anti-social elements.

We request the law enforcement agency to immediately book the criminals and take strong actions against them. We also requests the International Organization for Migration (IOM), United Nation’s High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and other partner agencies to form an Independent Team for free and fair investigation of the incidents.

Hari Khanal

(President,BTM)

In the same way, dozens of resettled Bhutanese in different parts of the world are sending us  messages of condolence to the family of the victim which we might publish tomorrow.
