Saroj Kumar Upadhyay, the CPN-Unified Socialist leader, died today undergoing treatment.
On Saturday afternoon, Upadhyay fell from the sixth floor of a restaurant in Sankhamul. He was rushed to the hospital following the accident.
The late Upadhyay is the youngest brother of former prime minister and Chairman of CPN-Unified Socialist Madhav Kumar Nepal. 62-year-old Upadhyay was survived by his two daughters.
Sarojji was a very good friend of mine. I am so sad to hear of his untimely and unnatural demise. He has contributed greatly to the engineering community of our country. I wish his soul to rest in peace. I also pray the Almighty for blessing the family of Sarojji to be able to maintain patience in this hour of great tragedy.
