Three Nepalese killed in horrific car accident

April 1, 2012

Three Nepalese workers were killed when a car crashed into them on a busy highway near Manama.

Bel Bahadur Pun, 47; Kul Prasad Pun Phakami, 23; and Tuka Raj Thapa, 22, were trying to cross the highway on their way home when a car, driven by a Bahraini, ran into them at around 2pm on Friday.

A spokesman for Gulf Fencing and Specialist Surfacing Establishment where the three victims worked told media that two of men were thrown 50 metres away because of the impact of the crash, while the third victim was dragged by the car after he got trapped under the wheels.

The driver sustained severe injuries and was taken to hospital for treatment.

Pun worked at the company for more than 20 years while Thapa and Phakami have recently arrived in Bahrain.
