APF Rescues One from Captivity


Banke/July 29

APF personnel have rescued Bam Bahadur Sinjali Thapa of Koteshwar in Kathmandu Metropolis-35 from Hotel Capital and Logde in Nepalgunj where he was held on.


According to the APF DSP Naresh Kumar Paudel, the team managed to rescue Thapa and arrest Gopal Rana and Jhalak Rana of Rimna in Khalanga8, Jajarkot.


Also the Bheri Karnali State Committee Secretariat member of newly formed CPN-Maoists, Gopal Rana alias Sangam and Jhalak along with two others had abducted Thapa from Bansgadhi Bazaar of Bardiya and brought him to Nepalgunj. APF DSP Paudel said he could carry out the mission after getting a tip off.

DSP added they were not revealing the names of other team members and that motivation for the abduction was apparently a financial one. The case has been furthered to District Police Office for more investigation.


Gopal was a state committee member before the party faction floated a new party.
