Duo missing from Assangthang since Sunday found dead

NAMCHI, 08 Feb: The dead bodies of two persons missing since Sunday [06 Feb 2011] were recovered today, the two having died in a road mishap which went unnoticed.
31-year-old Timothy Rai, resident of 9th Mile, Assangthang, and Pancha Bahadur Rai, 41, a resident of Dumidara in Assangthang, had left together for the Sunday haat at Namchi and not returned home since. Their families had been frantically searching for the two since Sunday and a search party discovered the dead bodies in the forest area near the turning at 12th Mile on the Namchi-Jorethang stretch today.
Upon discovering the dead bodies, the ex-panchayat assisting the search operations reported the matter to the police who recovered the dead bodies from the site and handed them over the respective families after autopsy.
While the case is still under investigation, it is reasonably established that they perished in an accident. The scooter they were riding at the time was also recovered from the spot.
