Former lawmaker Dr. Upreti passed at 88

Kathmandu, February 28

On Saturday, former lawmaker of National Assembly and renowned medical practitioner Dr. Shankar Nath Upreti, passed away at his 88 in Kathmandu.

Upreti was forced behind the bars several times for his conviction in democracy and protest against the party less Panchayat system, in 1990.

Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba has expressed grief over Dr. Upreti’s demise as he has lost an old friend, a loyal leader of the party and a tireless social worker.

On Sunday morning, his last rituals were carried out at Aryaghat, Kathmandu.
