Police team attacked in Kalikot
A police team mobilized to arrest a rape accused has been attacked at Sain of Patala Rural Municipality-6. The villagers attacked the security personnel while they were trying to nab rape accused Sankalpa Budha, 31, on Monday. Assistant Police Inspector Lamxi Dhungel Rawat from Area Police Office, Patala was injured in the attack. Similarly, a local Dhan Man BK was injured in retaliation.

Both the injured have been undergoing treatment at a local health post, according to Police Inspector Shuvraj Bam.

Budha has been absconding following the incident. Search for him is underway, Bam added. Budha was accused of raping a Dalit woman in the village on October 17 last year. The victim’s family had filed an FIR at the District Police Office after a month of the crime. But the accused had been absconding. The police team was mobilized after police knew that Budha had arrived at his village. Although he was arrested while sleeping at home, the police team could not tackle villagers' attack, thereby being bound to lose the captive.
