Dahal Umesh, a 41-year-old father from Nashville, Tennessee, lost his life after getting involved in a fight outside a Topgolf venue on the evening of June 29, 2024. Umesh was trying to mediate an escalating argument when he was violently attacked.

Umesh, part of the local Nepali community in Nashville, was at a concert hosted by the Nashville Nepalese Association at the time of the incident. The event was taking place on the lower level of Topgolf on Cowan Street, where Umesh was enjoying a performance by the Nepali rock band, “Mantra.”

According to reports from the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department (MNPD), the altercation shifted to the parking lot where Umesh attempted to defuse the tension. He was struck, causing him to fall and hit his head on the concrete. While down, he was kicked multiple times. Umesh was rushed to a local hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries on Tuesday.

The primary suspect, 26-year-old Bishal Rai, was apprehended at his Antioch, Nashville residence. Initially, Rai faced charges of aggravated assault, but following Umesh’s death on Tuesday, the charges were elevated to criminal homicide. Rai, who was previously charged with felony aggravated assault-strangulation in a separate case that was later dismissed, is currently being held without bond awaiting a hearing.

Umesh’s untimely death has left his wife, Damanta Kafley Dahal, and their two young daughters in deep grief. Friends and family are struggling to come to terms with the loss of a man known for his generous spirit. “He was always the first to step in and help,” shared a family friend. “We are devastated by his loss.”

What was supposed to be a night of community celebration and bonding turned into a nightmare with the tragic incident. The MNPD is continuing its investigation, working to identify any other individuals involved in the assault. An MNPD spokesperson stated, “The investigation is ongoing, and we are committed to bringing all those responsible to justice.”

In the wake of this tragedy, the community is rallying around Umesh’s family, extending condolences and offering support. A memorial fund has been established to assist with funeral expenses and provide ongoing support to his wife and children.
