A FAMILY in Ba is without a husband and father after the death of 45-year-old Jai Ram Sharma, who was involved in a road accident this week.
Family members are still trying to come to terms with the loss of their hardworking dad, who was hit by a bus as he was cleaning the road.
Bereaved daughter Bhawna Sharma said she had never imagined that such a tragedy would happen to her family.
She said her father, who was a labourer with the Ba Town Council, left behind a huge vacuum in the family.
"My dad was not that educated but he struggled to secure a good future for us," said Ms Sharma.
"Through his hard work, three of us managed to secure good jobs."
