(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA) has collected the necessary funds to save a fellow countryman sentenced to death in the UAE. The association, which had to raise around RO32,000, managed to collect over RO40,000 in the form of contributions from around the world. Some of the amount that was raised in Oman has already been sent to NRNA UAE and the rest will be used to resolve community issues in the country.

The fund raising drive began on February 4 across the world. Anish Khaling Rai, 23, was involved in a brawl with a Pakistani national on February 9, 2012. The man later died while undergoing treatment in a hospital. The family of the deceased demanded AED300,000  as blood money to drop charges against him. NRNA offics from all over the world had come together to raise the money.

DB Chettri, president, NRNA, said, ''We had to raise almost 8.2mn Nepali rupees but support came from all across the world and we could raise more than 10mn Nepali rupees (over RO40,000).''

He said that this is the second time NRNA raised funds for such an issue. The first instance was in 2006, when a Nepali worker was sentenced to death for murdering a Filipino in Kuwait. ''The Nepali community in Oman has been very sympathetic and co-operative. Rai is happy. Finally, he will be released,'' Chettri said.

He will also represent Oman at the annual meet of NRNA in Bahrain on May 9 and 10. ''The main agenda of the meet is to discuss problems of migrant workers, mainly housemaids in Oman.'
