A man from Bhaktapur has reportedly vandalised an ambulance that carried him back home after successful treatment against Covid-19 at a Kathmandu-based hospital.

The 24-year-old from Kamalbinayak of the district also accused police of abduction and misbehaved with them at Sallaghari Chok of Bhaktapur.

Later, family members told police that he had some mental health problems. The law enforcers released him after making the family sign an agreement to compensate the ambulance operator.

The man was admitted to the APF Hospital in Balambu on August 23. He had achieved recovery recently after being put on a ventilator for some days.
