Bull kills farmer

Maciu Malo
Tuesday, May 21, 2013

A SON's wish to reunite with his father will not eventuate after the latter was killed by a bull last Saturday.

Two weeks after last meeting his dad, Vikash Prasad was shocked to hear the sad news.

"I was told by one of my uncles that dad was attacked by our bull in our cane plantation," Mr Prasad said.

"The news was hard to swallow since I just met with my dad in Fiji two weeks ago during the funeral of my mother-in-law.

"I told my dad during that visit that I will come back and spend more time in the farm unfortunately this will not happen."

His mother Daya Wati Prasad said she was at home when the incident occurred and had heard her husband calling for help after being attacked.

Mrs Prasad said it was sad to be separated from her husband after 40 years of marriage.

"This is one of the saddest moments of my life and I will miss by husband," she said

Mr Prasad said the family planned to sell the killer bull.

Police West spokeswoman Naina Ragigia said the deceased had gone to tether the bull when it attacked him.
