Kathmandu, May 15

Two men who sustained severe injuries after being beaten up by their partners over a business deal, at Hariyan Municipality, Sarlahi, on Sunday evening have been admitted to Om Hospital.

Bikash Kumar Chimoriya, 24, and his friend Mani Ram Upreti, 26, were nursing injuries in their thighs, hands and back. According to Chimoriya, his neighbour, who was also his father’s business partner, beat them up with an iron rod.

Chimoriya said, “Haribol Mainali and his wife Sarbda Mainali beat us with iron rod and hurled bricks on us.”

He said, “Haribol Mainali and my father Bal Ram were business partners. We had established a brick factory called ‘Sajha Brick Factory.’ After two years, my father felt that the partnership didn’t work, so he decided to break it. We handed over the company to Mainali couple demanding our share of money.” He added, “Mainali promised us to provide our money after clearing book-keeping accounts. But he didn’t provide us money even after two years.”

Chimoriya said that he had also registered a complaint at a judiciary unit of Hariyan Municipality, where both Chimoriya and Mainali agreed to divide the capital of the factory. They had also agreed not to sell bricks from the factory until the complainant got his share of the money back.

“But the mayor of the municipality permitted Mainali to sell 30,000 pieces of bricks to operate his business. However, Mainali sold more than 70,000 pieces of bricks without informing us,” alleged Chimoriya.

“Our house was under auction and we had to sell our land to clear the house loan. Mainali didn’t give us our share of money. So I had to go to Dubai to earn money for paying the family debt,” he said, adding, “After we  heard that Mainali was selling bricks without informing us, I and my friend went to stop his brick deal. However, instead of cancelling the brick deal, he started beating us with an iron rod and his wife hurled bricks on us.”

“I somehow reached the police station to inform them about the incident. With the help of the police I and my friend were admitted to the hospital,” said Upreti.

“Police arrested Mainali’s wife, but she was released soon after. Mainali is out of contact,” Upreti said adding,“We sustained severe injuries due to their beatings but despite keeping her in custody, they freed her. We want justice and security.”

THT could not reach the mayor of Hariyan Municipality and Haribol Mainali.
