In a meeting held with the chiefs of security bodies at the Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers at Singha Durbar on Wednesday, Prime Minister Dahal asked them to carry out an investigation in depth and take action to provide justice to those who suffered in the incident.

"I have taken the incident that occurred in Gongabu on Monday seriously. The state should take such types of incidents that occur in the capital seriously. How and why such incidents took place. A deep investigation should be carried out. Create an environment to provide justice to victims as soon as possible," the Prime Minister said.

On the occasion, chiefs of the Nepal Police, Armed Police Force, and National Investigation Department said they had not imagined such an unpleasant incident in the New Bus Park area.

They briefed PM Dahal that a preliminary investigation shows that 33 police personnel were injured in the incident, no human casualty was reported in the incident due to police alertness and a group of looters took benefit of the adverse situation.

They also shared that a committee under the leadership of the Senior Superintendent of Police of the Nepal Police has already been formed to investigate the incident.
