Nirmala Murder Case: At least four Demonstrators injured in a clash with police in Kanchanpur
At least four people were injured after police opened fire on protesters while they were staging demonstration demanding arrest of the culprit involved in the rape and murder case of Nirmala Panta on Thursday.
Those injured are Arjun Bhandari, 17, of Bhimdatta Municipality-18, Tej Bhatta, Krita Paneru and Santosh Kathariya. They have sustained shrapnel injuries. Similarly, police head constable Harka Bahadur Pal and Constable Mahesh Bhatta have also been injured in the clash.
Kanchapur locals have been demonstrating for the last three days demanding arrest of the culprit involved in the raping and killing of Nirmala Panta, a 13-year-old girl of Bhimdatta municipality-2, Kanchanpur.
The irate locals had called an indefinite strike on last Tuesday. The indefinite strike has brought the life in Kanchanpur to a grinding halt.
Kanchanpur Police arrested 41-year-old Dilip Singh Bista, a local of Bhimdatta Municipality-19, in connection with the Nirmala rape case after 24 days of the incident.
Market places in Mahendranagar, Suda, Lalpur, Daiji, Champhapur, Sisaiya, Bhansi, schools and factories and transportation have remained closed due to the strike.
Demonstrators have been burning tyres in the major thoroughfares of the town while students from various schools too have been taking part in the demonstrations.
