Banished by their families and abandoned, the widows here are even ignored by politicians as well for most of them are not registered voters.
Last season 18 women reached the top of Everest -- towering over the world at 8,848-metre -- a record number, according to Nepal's department of tourism.
Hundreds of widow sisters, mothers and people gathered at the historic Gopinath temple of Vrindavan and paid respect to the departed soul and offered condolences.
The incident came to light in Sitapur district on Saturday.
The widows have found homes in 'Krishna Kutir', a 1,000-bed facility developed by the Ministry of Women and Child Development under the 'Swadhar Greh' scheme on 1.4 hectares of land.
Located in a sensitive coastal area and in proximity to several defence establishments, the flats however ended up being allocated to bureaucrats, and relatives of politicians.
