Rajbiraj, December 31

Employees at Saptari’s Bode Barsain Municipality have demanded fair investigation into the assault of municipality engineer Dhan Kishor Sah and sought action against the guilty.

The agitating employees have made public their agitation programme that includes the shutdown of Bode Barsain bazaar and protest meeting tomorrow seeking investigation and action against the attackers who, they accused, had thrashed the engineer at the direction of the mayor.

According to Engineer Alok Kumar Yadav, a group of five persons including office assistants Dambar Yadav and Pankaj Yadav of the same office had mounted an attack on the engineer on Saturday evening.

Engineer Alok Kumar Yadav is a member of the struggle committee formed to pile pressure on the authority concerned to investigate the attack on Engineer Sah.

Sah was injured in the attack.

Further, engineer Yadav informed that Sah was the coordinator of a struggle committee formed to pile pressure to investigate irregularities by Mayor Ates Kumar Singh Yadav and was attacked at the direction of the mayor.

Engineer Sah claimed that he was attacked for raising his voice against  irregularities involving the mayor.

Mayor Yadav, however, denied any involvement in the attack on the engineer. “Actually, I haven’t misused any government land and indulged in financial irregularities as rumoured,” he said.

Meanwhile, the locals too have demanded an investigation into the attack and the alleged irregularities involving the mayor.
