Slain Maoist cremated

Dhading, October 21:

Maoist cadre Krishna Bhandari, who was killed in the attack of Youth Force (YF) cadres three days ago, was cremated here today. Bhandari was the president of the Dhading district chapter of the Maoist-affiliated All Nepal Landless Association (ANLA).

Prior to the cremation, Maoists cadres organised a funeral procession at district headquarters Dhadingbesi. The procession started from the Dhading District Hospital and coverged into a condolence meet at Puccharchowk in Dhadingbesi.

At the programme, speakers denounced Bhandari’s killing and demanded legal actions against the culprits. After the meet, Jamakattel covered the body with Maoists’ party flag.
