UP man killed in Nepal plane crash had gone to pay obeisance to Lord Pashupatinath after son's birth

New Delhi: A man from Uttar Pradesh, who was among the five Indians killed in a plane crash in Nepal on Sunday, had gone to pay obeisance at the famous Pashupatinath Temple in Kathmandu after his wish for a son was fulfilled. 

32-year-old Sonu Jaiswal, a liquor store owner in Uttar Pradesh's Ghazipur district, has two daughters and had taken a vow to visit the Pashupatinath Temple if he had a son, his relative and Chak Jainab village head Vijay Jaiswal told news agency PTI.

"Sonu, along with his three friends, had gone to Nepal on January 10. His main purpose was to pay obeisance to Lord Pashupatinath as his wish to have a son, now six months old, has been fulfilled. But fate had something else in store for him," Vijay Jaiswal said.

His friends were identified as Abhishek Kushwaha, 26, Vishal Sharma, 27, and Anil Kumar Rajbhar, 25.

According to villagers, the four friends killed in the Nepal plane crash were to return to Ghazipur on Tuesday after paragliding in the popular tourist hub of Pokhara.

While Abhishek Kushwaha belonged to Dharwa in the Nonhara area, Vishal Sharma was from Alawalpur Chatti village in the Badesar area, and Anil Kumar Rajbhar was a resident of Chak Jainab.

According to locals, Sharma worked as a computer operator in a two-wheeler showroom, Kushwaha was in the computer business and Rajbhar operated a "Jan Sewa Kendra" (public service centre).

Meanwhile, rescue workers have retrieved 69 bodies from the accident site in Nepal's Pokhara.

Officials said 41 bodies out of 69 recovered so far have been identified, while three missing persons are believed to be dead and rescuers will resume their operation on Tuesday to retrieve the bodies.
