New Zealand. A Nepali man in New Zealand has been ordered to leave New Zealand or face deportation after beating his friend unconscious.
Paras Bhandari, 24, who has been in New Zealand on a study and work visa since 2018, was found guilty of beating and threatening to kill in July 2020.
According to local New Zealand media reports, Bhandari allegedly beat the man after he told his family and friends about drinking and partying.
Bhandari pushed him against the wall and beat him in the mouth and head until he was unconscious. The victim’s nose was broken and bruises were seen in many places.
Bhandari, who works as a hotel safe, was placed in community detention for six months and ordered to pay a $1,000 fine.
Although he was ordered deported in August 2020, he appealed to the Immigration and Protection Tribunal.
But the tribunal has rejected his application and his visa will expire within 28 days of the decision being made public.
Bhandari will have to leave New Zealand within 28 days to avoid deportation or apply for a temporary visa, saying he will not get a plane ticket to Nepal because of Kovid.
Earlier in the day, Bhandari had pleaded not to be deported, arguing that New Zealand had made him a better person, that his family had spent a lot of money to come to New Zealand, and that he had done much-needed work during the Covid and Lockdown.
