KATHMANDU: The Young Communist League activists today staged demonstrations in the capital demanding probe into the mysterious death of Maoist’s Kathmandu district member Rajendra Phuyal.
“We were informed about Phuyal’s death four days after his body was found,” said Jwala, YCL Kathmandu district in-charge. Maharajgunj and Balaju remained tense after YCL activists started hurling stones at the police and blocked the traffic. Police had to fire tear gas shells to bring the situation under control. A few police personnel were also hurt in the clash.
According to DSP Meera Chaudhary, chief, Metropolitan Police Circle, Balaju, Phuyal had been rushed to Bir Hospital after locals found him in a critical condition at Bhangeritar of Dharmasthali VDC-7 on June 11. He was admitted to the TU Teaching Hospital but was left there as nobody came to claim his body. “The police found a phone diary in his pocket while the hospital was preparing for post mortem today,” DSP Chaudhary said.
