KATHMANDU, June 3: The Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA) has dismissed report of an attempt to capture police station in Solukhumbu. It had been reported that the group of 25-30 cadres of the Chand-led outfit tried to capture the police station at Mahakulung rural municipality-03, Chheska on Sunday night.
According to the spokesperson at the MoHA, Ram Krishna Subedi, the attempt of the capture is a rumor.
“It is just a rumor that Biplav-led group tried to capture the police station,’ said Subedi while talking with Republica online. He, however, admitted that the team of additional security personnel has been deployed to the area. He added that the area was lacking the sufficient number of the police force for which the ministry decided to mobilize the additional force.
It was reported that an attempt of the Chand-led group to capture a police station in Solukhumbu was failed last night as the police personnel decamped with the weapons after receiving tip-off about the Biplav cadres’ plan, sources said.
