Birgunj Sub-Metropolitan City boss assaulted by own staffer

BIRGUNJ: A reportedly inebriated officer at the Birgunj Sub-Metropolitan City Office in Parsa district on Friday physically assaulted own boss in a fit of rage.

Though the boss, BSMC Executive Officer Bishnu Prasad Koirala was unhurt in the attack, an office assistant sustained minor injuries.

Earlier, two drivers employed by the BSMC had vandalised the desk of Administrative Officer Ram Dayal Yadav, after the latter refused to recommend pay hike for the drivers working on the contract basis.

The vandalism fuelled anger in Yadav, who was already under the influence of alcohol, and he, hence, resorted to attack on the boss, police said.

Yadav is on the run since the incident.

Office Assistant Mahadev Yadav sustained injuries while the Administrative Officer attacked the Executive Officer and has been rushed to the Narayani Sub-Regional Hospital.

Officials at the BSMC informed that Bishnu Prasad and Ram Dayal were not in good terms since the former transferred the latter to the administration section from the account section around two months ago.
