Rolpa, November 12
Some cadres of Netra Bikram Chand ‘Biplav’-led CPN Maoist on Sunday reportedly attacked CPN-Maoist Centre leader and the party’s candidate for House of Representatives polls from Rolpa district, Barsha Man Pun.
While an explosive was hurled at his vehicle yesterday, Biplav’s cadres rolled stones over his vehicle today. Likewise, a fire was opened targeting him.
Police also opened a fire to chase them away, a cadre accompanying the leader told Onlinekhabar.
Pun was obstructed for two hours while he was on the way to Duikholi from Ramchi, according to him.
Meanwhile, police arrested three persons for their suspected involvement in the attack.
Security sources in the district say the repeated attacks made on the leader not only aim at intimidating the candidate, but they have been carried out with ill intentions.
The Biplav-led group, however, is yet to claim the responsibility.
