A 28-year-old man died on impact spot when the Maruti car he was travelling in veered off road at Babichu on the Wangdue-Trongsa highway around 9 am on January 11. Babichu is about 12 km from Pelela pass. The man was travelling to the wife’s house in Rukubji when the incident occurred. His body was recovered the next day.
Update: The former gup and royal advisory councillor Chang Ugyen’s defence lawyer asked the High Court’s Bench I to quash the lower court’s two-and-a-half-year-sentence for allegations remaining not ‘proven beyond reasonable doubt’.
