Sonu Jaiswal was intending to express his gratitude for his son’s birth in a Facebook Live video, which authorities believe he recorded just before the accident.
“On January 10, Sonu and his three buddies left for Nepal. His major goal was to show respect because his wish to have a son—who is now six months old—had come true. However, fate had other plans for him “A relative and the village chief, Vijay Jaiswal, said to news organisation PTI.
According to Vijay Jaiswal, Sonu Jaiswal already had two daughters and had vowed to take a son to the Pashupatinath Temple.

After paragliding in Pokhara on Tuesday, the four were scheduled to return.
Sanjay Jaiswal, a 26-year-old native of Sitamarhi, Bihar, was the fifth Indian.
A man can be seen photographing the plane’s attempt to land in the 97-second Facebook Live video that Sonu Jaiswal is thought to have taken.
The commission was established by Nepal’s prime minister, Pushpa Kamal Dahal, to look into the crash, which has been called the greatest aviation calamity to hit the nation in 30 years.
In 45 days, a report is expected.
