Niat hati ingin memarahi sopir Kopaja yang akan menabraknya, pemuda ini malah dipukuli gerombolan ormas yang ada di dalam kendaraan tersebut.

Kapolsek Kramatjati, Kompol Andini telah menuturkan, peristiwa itu telah terjadi sekitar pukul. 18:30. Reza telah menjadi bulan-bulanan penumpang yang tidak terima memarahi sopir atas mobil yang ditumpanginya. “Korban luka memar di wajahnya ,” kata kapolsek Senin (17/2) kemarin .

Diceritakan Kapolsek, kejadian itu bermula saat korban yang akan menyeberang di samping Pusat Grosir Cililitan (PGC) nyaris ditabrak Kopaja 57 jurusan Kampung Rambutan – Blok M. Korban yang kaget pun langsung menggebrak bus 3/4 tersebut. “Dia teriak bawa mobilnya biasa saja dong,” kata Andini menirukan korban.

Tanpa disadari, mobil tersebut ternyata berisi penumpang dari salah satu ormas. Tanpa komando, penumpang yang ada langsung turun untuk menghakimi Reza. “Korban kabur melarikan diri namun dapat ditangkap gerombolan itu dan langsung memukulinya,” ujar Andini lagi.

Beruntung, tiga orang warga yang ada di sekitar dapat melerai aksi brutal kelompok ormas tersebut. Korban langsung dilarikan ke RS Budi Asih. “Korban pun saat ini masih shock dan sulit dimintai keterangan atas kasus pengeroyokan yang telah dialaminya,” imbuhnya.

KATHMANDU, Nepal — When the dense pillar of smoke from cremations by the Bagmati River was thinning late last week, the bodies were all coming from Gongabu, a common stopover for Nepali migrant workers headed overseas, and they were all of young men.

Hindu custom dictates that funeral pyres should be lighted by the oldest son of the deceased, but these men were too young to have sons, so they were burned by their brothers or fathers. Sukla Lal, a maize farmer, made a 14-hour journey by bus to retrieve the body of his 19-year-old son, who had been on his way to the Persian Gulf to work as a laborer.

“He wanted to live in the countryside, but he was compelled to leave by poverty,” Mr. Lal said, gazing ahead steadily as his son’s remains smoldered. “He told me, ‘You can live on your land, and I will come up with money, and we will have a happy family.’ ”

Weeks will pass before the authorities can give a complete accounting of who died in the April 25 earthquake, but it is already clear that Nepal cannot afford the losses. The countryside was largely stripped of its healthy young men even before the quake, as they migrated in great waves — 1,500 a day by some estimates — to work as laborers in India, Malaysia or one of the gulf nations, leaving many small communities populated only by elderly parents, women and children. Economists say that at some times of the year, one-quarter of Nepal’s population is working outside the country.
