Kathmandu, June 11
A 26-year-old Nepali migrant worker attempted to commit suicide after alleged mental torture from his supervisor in Macau, a local television informed.
Ishwor Thing slit his neck with a sharp weapon after failing to tolerate the ignorance of his recruitment agency and mental torture from his Filipino supervisor.
Thing had paid Rs 1.2 million to a recruitment agent, Bishal Thapaliya, to go to Macau around a month ago. On the other hand, it has been learnt that Global Securities, his employer, had received MOP 50,000 (around Rs 670,000) from the agent to provide him the job.
The Filipino supervisor, Joey, had been threatening the victim ever since he joined the company.
According to Macau police, the company authorities would be able to hire new employees if Thing left the job. “He attempted suicide inside his hostel room. He had come to Macau taking a loan of Rs 1.2 million and the company said they would not refund the amount. He then tried committing suicide”
Thing is undergoing treatment at local Sangteng Hospital.
It has been learnt that a local agent and Non-Resident Nepalis Association leader Yubaraj Neupane had sent a demand letter to Thapaliya.
Meanwhile, the family has demanded strict action against the agent.
