JANAKPUR — Supporters of suspended parliamentarian Sanjaya Kumar Shah’s wife Rangila Devi Shah have enforced a shutdown in Janakpur Friday.
The supports claim that police mistreated Rangila Devi who was arrested while she was staging hunger-strike at Janakpur Chowk, demanding a legal investigation into a case where her spouse is alleged to have killed media entrepreneur Arun Singhaniya.
The transportation service, academic institutions, and industries in Janakpur area have been adversely affected due to the strike.
According to the District Police Office, Rangila Devi was taken to the Zonal Hospital after her health started deteriorating during the protest. She was staging protest since April 14.
Rangila Devi, however, has accused police for man-handing her and piling pressure on her for undergoing treatment at the Hospital.
Meanwhile, Shivashankar Shah, President of Janakpur Chamber of Commerce and Industry, has staged hunger-strike at Janakpur.
