One of the three locals who were injured in police firing in Bardibas of Mahottari district on Tuesday has died.
The victim has been identified as Buddhi Raj Neupane aka Sanjaya, 40, a resident of Bardibas-1, informs Chief District Officer Krishna Bahadur Katuwal.
Seriously injured in the clash after receiving bullets in both of his thighs, Neupane was airlifted to Grande Hospital in Kathmandu for further treatment. However, he breathed his last this morning, according to the victim’s relative Saugat Neupane.
Earlier on Tuesday, locals of Bardibas had stated a demonstration throughout the day demanding action against the culprit after a local six-year-old girl was found dead on Monday night. Police had resorted to firing in their bid to end the road obstruction imposed by locals.
