Police arrested three persons of a gang in connection with a serious attack on Bhim Kumar Gurung, 16, of Nirmalnagar in Byas Municipality a week back, in Tanahun.

On the evening of May 31, a group of nine persons armed with weapons had attacked the teenager. Following the victim’s statement, the police picked up the three persons of the assaulting gang last evening.
