India asks Nepal to probe stone pelting incident at its envoy
Kathmandu: India has taken serious note
of a recent incident in which stones were pelted at its
Ambassador`s vehicle in Nepal and has asked Kathmandu to
investigate the issue to punish the culprit.
India`s concerns were conveyed by the Ministry of
External Affairs to Nepal`s Ambassador in New Delhi Rukma
Shumsher Rana, sources said.
India`s Ambassador to Nepal Rakesh Sood, during his
recent visit to northern Nepal`s mountainous region, was
greeted with protests by the Maoists, some of whom displayed
black flags to him.
One of the protesters reportedly hurled a shoe at the
Indian embassy officials, while some of them pelted stones at
the Ambassador`s vehicle on October 6 incident in Solukhumbu.
MEA told the Nepalese envoy that the incident was
unfortunate and should be investigated to nail the culprits.
No sooner had Sood and his team reached Faplu airport
in Solukhumbu to inaugurate a drinking water project, a team
of Maoist activists led by party`s central leader Gopal Kirati
waved black flags at him while chanting anti-Indian slogans.
