Gandaki Province lawmaker Tek Bahadur Gharti died on Thursday while undergoing treatment for Jaundice in India. Gharti, 46, was taken to New Delhi-based Apollo Hospital by air ambulance on Tuesday for treatment.

Gharti, who had been ill since long, was admitted to Phewa City Hospital in Pokhara for four days in the third week of November.

He was later taken to the Dhapasi-based Grande Hospital on November 24 after there was no sign of improvement. He was taken to India after the hospital could not treat him properly.

It has been learnt that preparations were underway to transplant his lever.

Rastriya Janamorcha Parliamentary Party leader of Province Assembly Krishna Thapa said the body of Gharti is being brought to his home district.

“Gharti died at around 1 pm today,” Thapa said, adding, “Preparations are underway to bring back his body to Nepal.”

Gharti had won the recently held elections from the ticket of Rastriya Janamorcha from Baglung-2 (B). He is survived by his wife, two sons and two daughters.
