Kavre, July 31

Kavre police have arrested and launched an investigation into two politburo members of the Netra Bikram Chand-led Nepal Communist Party for their alleged involvement in arson at Blue Shine Stone Crusher Industry in Dandapani of Namobuddha Municipality, Kavre.

A crusher machine, four tippers and two excavators were torched on the night of April 13 at the crusher industry.

Police arrested Krishna Dhamala of Birendranagar Municipality, Surkhet; and Mohan Karki of Nilkantha Municipality, Kavre; last Thursday from Kathmandu.

Both have been remanded to custody and an investigation into the incident is on, according to SP Rabiraj Khadka of Kavre.

The torched crusher industry belongs to Nepali Congress district leader Kunsang Lama.

A group of around 10 persons had sprayed kerosene and set the industry ablaze at night. The arsonists had shouted, “Long live Nepal Communist Party’ and fled the scene.

NCP said the party had taken action against the crusher industry on the basis of locals’ complaints.

Nepal Communist Party Janakpur-Sagarmatha Bureau Department of Commerce leader Sadbhab said that his party had attacked the crusher industry on the basis of the complaint that Kunsang Lama was flaunting his muscles and meting out torture to locals and the industry was causing a lot of environmental problems.
