A squad from the Kathmandu Valley Crime Investigation Office (KVCIO) has arrested two people dealing in narcotics.
The police had to open fire to get hold of them. Those arrested are 48-year-old Mohammad Karim of West Bengal, India, and 35-year-old Harka Limbu of Kechan Rural Municipality-8, Jhapa district of Nepal, said Superintendent of Police Rabindra Regmi, spokesperson for the KVCIO.
“Mohammad Karim sustained injuries when police had to fire at them for self-defense. He is being treated at the Gothatar-based Kantipur Hospital,” Regmi said. Police have confiscated a 6.75mm pistol, three rounds of its bullet, 200 grams of substance that looks like brown sugar, and a weighing balance.
