Assistant Dean of Education Faculty of the Tribhuvan University (TU) Bauwa Lal Sah has been kept in police custody on Wednesday after being accused of sexually assaulting a girl walking on the road.
Students had tried to attack Sah on charge of attempting to rape a 16-year-old girl who had gone to the TU for transcript of her maternal uncle.
“A girl came to the police saying Sah who was riding a motorcycle groped her and tried to rape her while taking a short route from the Nepal Bank branch inside the TU compound to the Office of the Controller of Examinations in Balkhu,” Chief of Kirtipur Police Circle Anil Khadka told Setopati. “But she has yet to register a complaint. She says she will lodge one once her guardians arrive.”
Sah has refuted the allegation.
Students chanted slogans against Sah after the girl reached the police station. A police team rescued him fearing an attack on him.
“He is now in the Kalimati Circle,” DSP Khadka said.
