The accident has sent shockwaves through the tight-knit comedy community. Basyal, known for his infectious humor, was not only a contestant in the second season of the popular show but also a key member of the production team for its current season.

The tragedy has been compounded by the legal complexities surrounding the accident. Police have taken director Bishal Bhandari and Pujan Adhikari into custody on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol. Basyal’s family is demanding swift and decisive legal action.

The accident occurred around 3 AM as the group was returning from Nagarkot. Their vehicle collided with a parked tipper, leaving Basyal with life-altering injuries. Others involved in the accident include comedian Pawan Bhattarai of Assam, Prakriti Giri, and Rajnish Aryal, who are all reportedly recovering from less serious injuries.
