DNYF members thrashed

Biratnagar, September 19:

The Maoists beat up and injured Yuba Raj Neupane and Arjun Gelal, members of the Democratic National Youth Union, today. The two, who were injured in the head, are undergoing treatment at the Biratnagar-based Koshi zonal hospital Biratnagar.

The two said they were thrashed because they had tried to prevent Young Communist League cadres from collecting donation a few days ago. Yesterday, YCL cadres Minesh Dhakal and Bikul Baniya were beaten by a group comprising secretary of the DNYU’s Babiyabirta VDC following an argument over donation collection.
