Unidentified group vandalizes Red Panda Park in Rasuwa


Bagmati, Rasuwa, Gosaikunda, Ward 6

An unidentified group vandalized the Red Panda Park under construction in Dhunche, the district headquarters of Rasuwa on July 13. The construction of the park, which started three years ago, has not been completed yet. The head of a statue of the world's rarest wild animal, the red panda, was torn down in the park. Also, broken beer bottles were thrown everywhere in the park. Four years ago, the rural municipality had prepared a detailed project report (DPR) for the construction of a red panda park in Gosaikunda rural municipality-6.

Police had arrested five people on suspicion of being involved in the incident and kept them in custody for 15 days. The five have been released on bail while four others are absconding and are being searched for, said police. Not only the park but also the structure of the "Balmandir" in Dhunche was also vandalized.
