Case filed against govt

A person on tuesday filed a complaint at the Metropolitan Police Traffic Division (MPTD), Ramshahpath, alleging a division engineer at the Nepal Water Supply Corporation (NWSC) of running away from the scene after hitting his vehicle.
Prajjwal Basnet, owner of the car (Ba 4 Cha 1342), today filed a complaint at the MPTD charging Bishwo Bhakta Kharel, division engineer at the NWSC, for fleeing the scene after hitting his vehicle twice at Ratnapark and Lazimpat yesterday afternoon.
Basnet said he was driving his car at Ratnapark and the government vehicle hit his car from the back. “I got off the car thinking that the driver of the vehicle will also get off. But the vehicle sped away,” he said, adding that he then chased the vehicle.
“I managed to compel the vehicle to stop near Gairidhara. The driver got off the vehicle and threatened me that I could do nothing to him,” he told.
“Instead of trying to settle the issue, Kharel again ran away from the scene after slightly hitting my car, damaging the bumper,” Basnet said. However, Kharel was not available for any comment.
Rajan Bhetwal, inspector at the litigation section of the MPTD, said they have received a complain and the MPTD would now investigate the case.
