Police have arrested Januka Nepali (27), the warden of New Life Hostel, Pokhara-15 in the Kaski district.
The student of nearby Siddhi Ganesh School had gone to his classroom on Monday with his penis fastened with the rubber band. After a few hours, he had cried so painfully that others asked him about the problem and he revealed it, according to the District Police Office.
