Nepal's former PM slapped at a function in Kathmandu

by Ani 0:50 mins

Former Nepal Prime Minister and leader of Nepal's 10-year long Maoist insurgency Puspa Kamal Dahal better known as Prachanda, or the Fierce One was allegedly slapped by ex-guerrilla across the face, smashing his glasses at a tea reception party in the capital Kathmandu. Police dragged away 25-year-old Padam Kunwar during the angry confrontation. Prachanda was also the chairman of the Unified Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) (CPN). Barshaman Pun, Finance Minister in the Maoist-led caretaker government, described the incident as "very unfortunate" and said it raised doubts over Prachanda's security.
