Situation turns awry in Lahan, city area tense


LAHAN:  At least five police personnel and two dozen entrepreneurs were injured in a clash between local entrepreneurs and police at Lahan in Sihara district this morning.

Police inspector Raj Kumar Shahi was also injured in the incident.
After the clash, tension ran high in Lahan and the market area is completely shut down.

The irate entrepreneurs have vandalized dozens of vehicles after the police interference. However, the police managed to resume the vehicular movement at around 1:00 PM.

The clash ensued after the entrepreneurs obstructed the highway by protesting the manhandling by police on Lahan based hotelier Sunil Saha, former chairman of Lahan Chamber of Commerce and Industry Niras Chaudhary, and chairman of the Contractors’ Association Bishal Saha.

Police personnel on plain clothes had attempted a raid in the hotel of Sunil last night based on a tip-off that a gang of criminals were taking shelter in it.

But police had thrashed a dozen entrepreneurs and guests after they prevented the police from raiding.

However, the entrepreneurs have demanded transfer of the Superintendent of Police (SP) Rajesh Lal Karn and Inspector of Ward Police Office, Lahan, Brij Kishore Chaudhary.

Likewise, hotelier Sunil has accused the police personnel of looting Rs 500,000 and a gold chain.

However, SP Karn said that the businesspersons themselves attacked the police without any reason. RSS
