Jatinkhuma, secretary of Lalpa Kohran Thar, said that after being brought home from the hospital, Jion’s pulse started running again. He said, ‘His (Jion-e) body is still hot. His family members and the people of Chuanthar of Baktang village cannot bury him under such circumstances.

According to Ramjuwa, president of the Chuanthar Village Council, more than 2,500 members from 433 families are part of the sect, which was founded by Jeon-e’s uncle some 70 years ago. Most of the members of the sect work as carpenters for a living.
“They all have great respect for him, and will not want to perform his last rites until they are convinced that he has left this world,” Ramjuwa said.
