KATHMANDU, July 19: *The condition of a police constable, who sustained injuries in a cash with demonstrators in Jumla on Tuesday, is out danger.

According to Assistant Sub Inspector Bir Bahadur Bhandari, police constable Kamal Acharya sustained critical injuries during a clash with the protesters. He has received a bullet in his chest and is undergoing surgery for bullet at Jumla Hospital.

The message about Acharya’s death had mistakenly spread online after DSP Tapan Dahal warned the protestors saying, “Our colleague is critical, any untoward incident may happen if you do not move away.” However, Acharya was undergoing treatment, then. 

Acharya sustained critical injuries in a clash that ensued after a troop of security personnel barged into the hospital where Dr KC’s supporters were staging a sit-in against the government's decision to airlift Dr KC.

*The news published mistakenly has been corrected.
