Nawalparasi rural municipality chair receives ‘death threat’

An unidentified person has reportedly been giving a life threat to chairperson of Palhinandan rural municipality Dipak Gupta.

“A person has been threatening me over the phone for the past one week especially in the evening, saying “you are undervaluing people nowadays. I will shoot you to death”. I am running into a state of stress and panic all the time as a result,” said Gupta.

“The phone number does not appear on my phone screen.” Only words reading private number are appeared instead, he said.

He has reported the incident to the police. Gupta was elected as the municipality member in the recently held local level elections from the CPN (Maoist Center) quota.
