The activists of Netra Bikram Chand-led Communist Party of Nepal (CPN) looted a ward office of Hupsekot Rural Municipality in East Nawalparasi district in the wee hours of Thursday morning.
They broke into the ward office of Hupsekot-3 and made off with office documents, a computer, a printer and a lamination machine, according to locals.
Pamphlets bearing the name of CPN-affiliated Hupsekot Gaupalika Janaparishan Nepal were also recovered at the scene.
Laxmi Pandey, chairperson of Hupsekot Rural Municipality, said that the pamphlets with the name of the CPN were recovered from the office building.
“People’s action has been taken to displace the local unit that is under a comprador parliamentary system,” the pamphlets read.
The incident comes just days after the CPN issued a letter to the chiefs of eight local units in the district, telling them to resign at the earliest.
The incidents of attack on the representatives of the local units have been reported in other places as well.
A group of assailants attacked and injured a rural municipality chief in Okhaldhunga on Wednesday while a ward chairman sustained injuries in similar attack in Chitwan on Tuesday.
