Pilgrims robbed early morning near Pashupati

Two pilgrims were robbed off their Rs 100,000 near the gate of Tribhivan International Airport this morning. 

Bhim Bahadur Budathoki (50) and Gopal Ram Bohora of Salyan were robbed off Rs 50,000 each at around 6:15 am this morning while they were heading to visit the Pashupatinath Temple New Buspark on a bus (Ba 2 Kha 4535).

Police said that an unidentified gang of three persons robbed them while they were taking off the bus near the airport gate as the bus did not drop them off at Gaushala Chwok.

Police have arrested bus driver Sunil Kumar Shrestha (21) of Dhading for further investigation and initiated manhunt to nab the absconding robbers.
