Wife: I’ve lost life part­ner, best friend

Fiji Sun - - Suncity -

I have lost not only my life part­ner, but my best friend, lamented Veena Ku­mari, the wife of late Dhar­men­dra Prasad.

Mr Prasad was found dead un­der stacks of burnt cane yes­ter­day morn­ing. He was lo­cated by the Na­tional Fire Au­thor­ity and Po­lice. On Mon­day, he told Ms Ku­mari that he was go­ing to put out the fire in his sug­ar­cane farm with his nephew.

And that was the last con­ver­sa­tion, she said, she had with him.

Po­lice spokesper­son Ana Naisoro con­firmed the in­ci­den say­ing the 60-year-old farmer of Korovuto, Ba, was dis­cov­ered dead yes­ter­day morn­ing.

“My chil­dren are both over­seas. My son is in New Zealand and my daugh­ter is in Aus­tralia and they kept ask­ing me over and over why did I let my hus­band go to the farm,” she said. She said she would miss her hus­band’s kind na­ture. SALOTE QALUBAU Edited by Ranoba Baoa
