Applicant dies during race
Oct 24, 2017-
A man trying out for temporary police (Myadi) job for the upcoming polls died after collapsing during a physical fitness test in Hetauda Sub-metropolis, Makwanpur, on Monday. Police said 24-year-old Prem Prasad Ghimire, a resident of Bakaiya Rural Municipality-4, had collapsed during a 1km race. He died on the way to hospital. Doctors suspected that Ghimire might have an underlying hear problem that caused his death. Ghimire was participating in the 1km sprint that Myadi aspirants were to complete within 5 minutes to get selected.
Deputy Superintendent of Police Dilip Jha said the nature of the test itself was not to be blamed for Ghimire’s death because even 55-year-old people completed the race inside 5 minutes.
The Makwanpur District Election Office has called for 1,328 Myadi vacancies, including 324 women. The office has received 3,345 applications.
