Sujata Shahi Thakuri, 24, originally from Daskilo, Gorkha, had been found dead in a fish pond in the garden of Fudong’s house. The locals attacked Fudong alleging him that he did not provide satisfactory answer when asked about Sujata’s death. The locals flocked to Itahari to know about the cause of Sujata’s death. The locals staged demonstration demanding action against Fudong this afternoon. The irate demonstrators hurled stones at the Fudong's house. Fudong has received a deep cut to his head in the attack. He has been undergoing treatment at BP Koirala Institute of Health Sciences. “Police are carrying out investigation into the incident of death”. Fudong’s house is at Itahari Sub-metropolitan City-4. There is a garden stretching along the wide area of land where a resort used to be run few years back. Sujata and her husband Ranjit Rana Magar were staffers at the resort then. Sujata and Ranjit had an inter-caste marriage. After Sujata became pregnant, she left the job and went to Kathmandu. She did not go to Ranit’s house for the fear that his parents would not accept her. Sujata and Ranjit were not living together since last eight months. Sujata had come to Fudong’s house in Itahari on Monday morning at 8:30 am. She was found dead at 10 am. आफ्नै घरमा मृत भेटिएकी महिलाबारे प्रष्ट जवाफ नदिएको भन्दै पूर्व जर्नेल एवं माओवादीका पूर्वसांसद कुमार फुदुङमाथि कुटपिट भएको छ । कुटपिटबाट उनको टाउकोमा चोट लागेको छ । उनको प्रहरीले उद्दार गरी उपचारका लागि लगेको छ । इटहरी-४ स्थित फुदुङको घरको बगैंचामा रञ्जु थापा मगरको शव भेटिएको थियो । उनको माछा पोखरीमा डुबेर मृत्यु भएको भनिएको छ । तर, कपडा समेत नभिजेको र शरीरमा निलडाम भएको भन्दै स्थानीयले मृत्यु शंकास्पद भएको बताएका छन् ।
