Binod Chaudhary is NOT “dead”, the first billionaire of Nepal is working hard at his Sanepa office
29 September 2016,
Sanjay Basnet, PA to Binod Chaudhary of “Wai Wai” fame, has confirmed his boss is very much alive and working hard, as usual.
When southasia.com.au called Mr Chaudhary’s office following a news report of his death, his PA said the tycoon was fine and “busy in a meeting” inside his chamber.
A news website posted a “Breaking News” yesterday claiming Mr Chaudhary, Nepal’s first Forbes billionaire, passed away in London on “Wednesday”.
“Binod Chaudhary was in London for medical treatment but unfortunately he passed on at 61,” telegraph.com said.
The news has turned out to be a classic example of “fake news” because first, he is not dead and secondly, he is not in London but in his own capital city.
A social media chatter is on about the renown industrialist’s reported passing away, including in Australia, with some reaching out to southasia.com.au for confirmation.
