Two injured in Kathmandu stray buffalo attack

KATHMANDU: Two persons were injured when a stray buffalo gored them separately in the Kathmandu Valley on Saturday.

The injured have been identified as a 47-year-old woman Usha Pokharel and a Nepal Police constable Sanjay Chaudhary.

Pokharel was admitted to the Chabahil-based Om Hospital after the buffalo suddenly attacked her, injuring on her back, at Mahankal, Bouddha, KMC-6.

Pokharel is in normal condition now, said police.

Likewise, the same buffalo also injured the constable Chaudhary at the Tribhuvan International Airport.

The buffalo had gored Chaudhary when he was trying to gain control over the trespassing buffalo at the main entrance of the Airport.

Police said the bovine animal died some minutes later while the security personnel were trying to tie it with ropes.

Meanwhile, the constable is undergoing treatment at the Nepal Police Hospital, in Maharajgunj.
