Nov 11, 2017-Former Finance Minister and Rolpa Constituency 1 candidate Barsha Man Pun's vehicle was ambushed at Sukudaha in Rolpa district. All the occupants escaped the incident unhurt. The vehicle suffered minor damages

Pun was heading towards Ghartigaun after concluding election campaign in Sukidaha when the vehicle (Ba 15 Cha 8628) was ambushed at Pedikhola, Bhitabang, in Madi Rural Municipality.

Police said no one has taken responsibility for the act. Police suspected cadres of Communist Party of Nepal might be behind it to avenge the arrest of its party cadres few days back. A police team has been dispatched towards the incident site. On Friday, a bomb was hurled towards former home minister Janardan Sharma's vehicle in Rukum district.
