Another ex-British Gurkha soldier has succumbed to COVID-19 in London, the capital of the United Kingdom. The latest victim is around 55 years old Laxman Shrestha who had been living in Plumstead of London.

Shrestha died at local Guys Hospital on Wednesday in course of treatment, said Bhoj Baral, who is also a former British Gurkha soldier and was in the same platoon where Shrestha was assigned to.

Shrestha originally hailed from Syangja and had been staying in London. He also has a house in Pokhara Lakeside in Nepal. He was hospitalised after suffering from cough and fever for the last two weeks. He was kept on ventilator support lately but his health showed no signs of improvement.

The number of Nepalis dying due to coronavirus in Britain has now reached 10, including seven ex-British Gurkha servicemen.
