Kathmandu, July 16
Nepal Volleyball Association (NVA) has taken action against three Nepal Army players for laying their hands on a spectator. All three players have been suspended.
Dhan Bahadur Bhatta, Rajendra Bista and Dhanpati Kunwar went to the stands and laid their hands on spectators during their game against Gandaki Province during the 7th Prime Ministers Cup NVA Women’s and Men’s Volleyball
For their lack of discipline, the association has suspended Bhatta for six months while Bista and Kunwar have been suspended for three months each.
The suspended players will not be allowed to take part in both domestic and international tournaments.
Durga Khadka, however, was let off with a warning.
This has also led to the removal of Hari Hajur Thapa as national team captain. The association believes Thapa, who could not control his players, is not fit to be the national team captain.
