Attempt to murder case against 11

The District Administration Office (DAO) Dolakha has filed attempt to murder case against 11 Maoist cadres involved in attacking Chief District Officer (CDO) Uddhab Bahadur Thapa and vandalizing his office on Sunday.
The authorities also filed public offence cases against 17 Maoists who are in police custody for their alleged involvement in the attack while four others were found innocent and freed after preliminary investigation, said Deputy Superintendent of Police Haribhakta Prajapati.
A Maoist group that reached the DA's office on Sunday to pressure the authorities to revoke a case filed earlier against Maoist leader Bishal Khadka, had assaulted CDO Thapa and vandalized the office.
The Maoists who were accused of attempt to murder are Kiran Dahal, Raju Karki (Prashun), Mohan Thapa, Dhruva Karki, Raj Kumar Basnet, Narayan Thapamagar, Tirtha Lama, Ajay Lama, Tirtha Raj Tamang, Dev Raj Tamang and Dawa Sherpa, according to DSP Prajapati.
However, Shiva Khadka, Bhim Lama, Amrit Lama and Bijay Yonjan were later released, police said.
