  February 28, 2017 By: INSEC

On the eve of Free Student Union’s election, there has been an arson attack on Sanothimi campus. Last night an unidentified group of people had set fire in the class room according to Campus chief Ram Chandra Ghimire.

A joint panel of All Nepal National Independent Students Union (ANNISU) –Revolutionary ‘Prachanda’ faction and Nepal Students Union; and an alliance of All Nepal National Free Students Union (ANNFSU) and ANNISU-Revolutionary (Biplab) are competing for a new FSU leadership in the campus.
ANNISU ‘Prachanda’ faction’s general secretary Birendra Basnet has accused the ANNFSU-ANNISU-R Biplab alliance of attempting to foil the election due to the fear of possible defeat while later refuted the allegation and demanded a fair investigation into the incident.
However, Campus Chief Ghimire said the election would be held on the scheduled date. Security personnel have been mobilised for the security of campus and to avert any untoward activities including a scuffle between two panels before and during the election.
