On June 25, 2023, a clash occurred in the village assembly of Rubyvalley village council, located in Sertung, within the jurisdiction of Rubyvalley Rural Municipality-3. The clash occurred between members of the Rashtriya Prajantra Party (RPP) and the village assembly, resulting in three civilians sustaining injuries.

The injured individuals have been identified as Milama Tamang (38), Amuk Tamang (30), and Rishiram Khanal (35), who serves as a teacher at Mukrawdebi Secondary School. Prompt medical attention has been provided to the injured parties at the local health center in Sertung.

Prior to the commencement of the village meeting, a procession led by the elected Ward Chairperson, Prasanth Tamang, representing RPP, engaged in acts of vandalism at the designated village meeting venue. The RPP organized a rally within the village assembly, expressing concerns over the appointment of Uttamlal Tamang, a teacher at Mukrawadebi High School, as a resource person by the municipality, which they believe has affected the quality of school education.

According to the information officer of the District Police Office, DSP Santulal Prasad Jaiswar, a clash ensued as teachers from Mukrawdebi Secondary School were also participating in the village assembly. Consequently, Rishiram Khanal, the aforementioned teacher, was apprehended and detained by the police as part of their response to the incident.
