Police resorted to baton charge soon after Karnali Province Chief Minister Mahendra Bahadur Shahi and Law Minister Naresh Bhandari exited the Karnali Academy of Health Science premises following intense protests from students and locals on Thursday.
The Karnali province government official’s team had reached KAHS to make preparation to send Dr Govinda KC to Kathmandu for medical treatment, forcefully, if necessary.
Karnali CM and Law Minister were barred from seeing the agitating doctor by the students inside the hospital premises and were met with protest outside as they were exiting the academy.
Meanwhile, over a dozen students and doctors have been injured in the police lathicharge.
Likewise, the security personnel misbehaved with the members of media and threatened to vandalise their equipment if they took photographs of the incident.
