POKHARA: A person was found dead, in his bed, in Pokhara Metropolitan City-20 on Sunday morning.
Police have identified the deceased as Tanka Bahadur Tamang (55) of Mulkharka in Sunkoshi Rural Municipality-5, Okhaldunga, who was working in a local road construction project for a month.
According to police, Tanka Bahadur, who lived with his nephew Indra Tamang and another worker, was found dead in his bed today morning with deep wounds in his head and eyes.
