UMDF cadres, who tried to attack UML MP, clash with police in Gaur

RAUTAHAT: A clash ensued between the cadres of United Democratic Madhesi Front and security personnel after the former tried to barge into the Rautahat Municipality Office in Gaur, during a protest rally on Thursday afternoon.

The UDMF cadres had been staging a lathi rally when some of them made an attempt to enter the government facility after seeing CPN-UML lawmaker Ram Kumar Bhattarai there, apparently to attack him.

The UDMF cadres started pelting stones at the security personnel who tried to prevent the protesters from attacking the main opposition lawmaker.

Three shells of tear gas were fired in order to disperse the protesters and contain the situation.

Police have detained three protesters including former lawmaker Rambha Devi Yadav.

At least one protester has reportedly sustained minor injuries in lathi charge.
