Dhading, June 4

An unidentified group vandalised Nilakantha Multiple Campus today during the internal examinations at Dhadingbesi in Dhading.

The unidentified group entered the campus premises and vandalised the administration and account sections at 8:00am while students of bachelors second year were taking their internal examinations.

Campus chief Nawaraj Sharma has issued a statement saying that two computers, two printers including two chairs, window panes, one telephone set, among others, were destroyed completely.

A bachelor’s first year student, Kabita Shrestha, was also injured in the incident.

The campus administration condemned the incident, saying the group had damaged campus property. The administration also demanded in the statement that the concerned authority should take immediate action to stop such unrest in the campus and bring back peaceful environment.

The administration further asked the concerned authority to take action against the culprits, compensate for the damaged materials and provide treatment for the injured student.

According to DSP Ram Bahadur KC in District Police Office, Dhading, a police team was deployed to search for the group involved in the vandalism.

Education institutions shut down in Dhading and across the country due to a strike called by the sister student unions of Chand, Baidhya and Baburam Bhattarai-led parties. The three parties have demanded withdrawal of price hike in petroleum products.

On June 2, Nepal Oil Corporation had increased fuel prices of petrol, diesel, kerosene and aviation turbine fuel.

Following the same, almost all private schools and colleges were closed while only Nilkantha Multiple Campus was running. Police suspect the campus got vandalised as the campus did not support the strike called by the three parties.
