One passes away in America

South Dakota: Bishnu Maya Adhikari, 45, who reached here under resettlement program in last August, expired on January 22 due to prolonged migration she was suffering from.
Her family sources said that she was admitted to Rose Medical Center as soon as she fainted and fell down. However, nothing could save her and she passed away.

Medical report cited that she had problems with her brain.

According to Shiva bhattrai, a resettled Bhutanese from Beldangi, the family of the deceased Adhikari has been performing her funeral rituals as per their Hindu tradition and culture.
All expenses for incineration of the dead body were supported by the Social Services of Colorado.
The Nepali community and Bhutanese folks are united to support the Adhikari family. The job-holding Bhutanese have contributed US $ 20 each and those without jobs US $ 10 each.
A Rizal Pandi from Sioux Falls has been deployed to conduct the function as per the Hindu religion for 13 days.

The first resettled Bhutanese to pass away in American soil, late Adhikari is survived by five children and husband.
