Crash bodies to be repatriated today.

THE bodies of three Nepali workers who died in a horrific car accident will be repatriated today.

Bel Bahadur Pun, 47, Kul Prasad Pun Phakami, 23, and Tuka Raj Thapa, 22, died after they were hit by a Mazda, while crossing the Shaikh Isa bin Salman Highway on Friday.

They worked for the Gulf Fencing and Specialist Surfacing Establishment.

The Bahraini driver of the car who was earlier admitted to hospital is under police custody.

Nepalese Embassy in Saudi Arabia Second Secretary Sagar Prasad arrived in Bahrain on Tuesday to oversee the repatriation.

Mr Prasad held a meeting with Nepali Club president Durga Giri, club members and company officials to discuss and speed up the repatriation process.

He left Bahrain yesterday after signing all the legal documents.

"We have received all the documents from Mr Prasad and completed formalities for the repatriation," said Mr Giri.

"The body will be repatriated today. We have also forwarded the case to our lawyer to follow up for compensation from the company as well as the General Organisation for Social Insurance."

It was earlier reported that Mr Pun, who worked for the company for the last 18 years, would get BD2,500 in compensation and relatives of the other two, who worked for five months, would get BD750.

A company spokesman said they are now preparing the settlement for all three, to be sent to their families within two weeks time.

The three workers hailed from Parbat district of Nepal.
