Three individuals were arrested for attempting to smear black on Prof. Dr. Prahlad Karki, the Acting Vice Chancellor of BP Koirala Institute of Health Sciences in Dharan (Ghopa) on January 30, 2024.

Among the arrested were Sadip Sirpali, Nishan Katwal and Khem Thapa.

District Police Office DSP Nabin Krishna Bhandari said that the accused were arrested for investigation on the charge of attempting to smear black to the Vice-Chancellor on January 30.

The Young Communist League, the youth wing of the Communist Party of Nepal led by Mohan Vaidya Kiran, stated that the attempt was made due to a lack of interest in addressing the issues of the BP Koirala Institute of Health and Science establishment.

The police reported that the individuals who went to the vice-chancellor’s office attempted to smear black on him.

DSP Nabin Krishna Bhandari stated that on January 30, one of the three individuals called by Vice Chancellor Karki to meet him attempted to smear him with black filled in a bottle.

The services of the Institute are being affected as teachers and employees are protesting, demanding promotions. They allege that Vice-Chancellor Karki has become an obstacle to fulfilling their demands.

Since January 14, OPD services and students’ studies have been affected as the protesting teachers and employees have boycotted their services, demanding promotions.
