Police arrest three for attacking on NC Banke president Koirala

Banke, September 13

Police have arrested three persons for their alleged involvement in assaulting Nepali Congress Banke president Kiran Koirala.

Police Inspector Poshan Thapaliya, chief of Dhanauni Area Police, shares that police are searching for other three involved in the incident of assaulting NC district leader.

A group of cadres of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) attacked Koirala and other cadres, claims Sushamshu Koirala, an NC cadre.

However, NCP Banke chair IP Kharel has refuted his allegation. “We do have no policy to disrupt the NC’s programme. It is an unpleasant incident occurred due to personal vengeance between an NC cadre and our youth supporters”.

An unruly group of youth had attacked NC Banke president and other cadres while participating in the second edition of NC’s nationwide awareness drive at Red Cross meeting hall in Sitapur of Banke on Thursday.

President Koirala had her hand fractured in the incident. Her treatment was undertaken at Western Hospital in Nepalgunj.
