Nepali police yet to launch investigations into death of Kerala tourists

Kathmandu, Jan 24 (UNI) Nepal police is yet to initiate investigations into the deaths of eight Kerala tourists as they are waiting for the final autopsy report.

In an unfortunate accident, eight Kerala tourists died on January 21 while staying at a Daman hotel. Overnight use of an LPG heater in their hotel room is believed to be the cause of deaths.

The tourists who had stopped at Daman, in the Makwanpur district on their way back from Pokhara to catch a flight back to India, were put up at the Everest Panorama Resort.

The Himalayan Times quoted Senior Superintendent of Police (Makawanpur District Police) Sushil Singh Rathaur as saying that any penal action against the hotel staff could only be taken on the basis of the final autopsy report.

The Department of Forensic Science, Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital had done an initial autopsy in which it stated carbon monoxide poisoning as the 'the most likely cause of death'. The organisation has also provided death certificates to family members of the deceased stating the same.

Meanwhile the Department of Tourism, Nepal has formed a five-member committee to probe whether the tourists died due to lapses on the part of the hotel's management.
