Binod Thulung Rai, 29, of Phidim Municipality-12, Panchthar was found dead in the home of his brother, Santosh Rai. Rai was found dead on Friday afternoon after the cowshed caught fire while making food for the cattle. 

According to Ward Chairperson Prem Narayan Acharya, Binod Rai, who had run out of the house when the cattle died due to the fire in the cowshed, was found dead at his brother's house. The incident is deemed suspicious as the deceased was bleeding from his nose.

Ward Chairperson Acharya, however, says the incident is not suspicious. He adds that Rai had high blood pressure and died because of drinking in the aftermath of the incident.
