Unidentified group sets ablaze parked bus in Birgunj

BIRJUNG: An unidentified group has torched a bus bearing registration Ga 1 Kha 3147 in Birgunj Metropolitan City on Sunday.

According to District Police Office, Parsa, the group has set fire to the bus parked along the bus station in Birgunj bypass roadway.

Although the Netra Bikram Chand led Communist Party had announced a general strike on Sunday, the impact has been minimum, said Deputy Superintendent of Police and DPO, Parsa Spokesperson Rajan Limbu.

However, the vehicle that was torched had only two months left on insurance maturity and the event might have been executed to claim insurance amount, hence the investigation has taken that direction, said DSP Limbu.
