Minister for Home Affairs Ram Bahadur Thapa says the state does not accept violence carried out in the guise of religion.

Receiving a memorandum demanding action against those involved in the attack on Hindu spiritual leader Acharya Shreeniwas in Biratnagar in the wee hours of Sunday, the Home Minister said the government was determined to take action against the culprits after due investigation.

He said police arrested two persons in connection with the case whereas a manhunt was launched to nab others.

“Some elements are active to lead the country towards instability by letting people fight in the name of ethnicity and religion,” he said, “They will be punished.”

Meanwhile, he also assured that the government would shoulder the cost of the victim’s treatment.

An unidentified gang had opened fire on the spiritual leader at around 2 am on Sunday. He is currently undergoing treatment.


Representatives of 48 religious groups and organisations had led a delegation to the Minister condemning the crime.
