Masked men rob money in mountainous Dolpa district

A group of eight to 10 masked men looted Rs 400,000 from the house of Tshering Gyaljen Lama at gunpoint at 10.00 p.m. in Tripurakot VDC-9 in mountainous Dolpa district last night (Thursday).

Lama said the assailants tried to rob yarsa gumba (caterpillar fungus) but could not succeed, as the villagers picketed his house following the noise. The robbers then fled the scene, he said.

“Police teams from Tripurakot, Liku and Pahada have been mobilized to search for the robbers,” said Assistant Sub-Inspector Rom Harsha Sijuwal.
