DHADING — An unidentified group has set ablaze two stalled container trucks at Chalise of Dhunibeshi municipality–6 of Dhading along the Prithvi highway on Sunday morning.
The two 22–wheel trucks with Indian registration number plates — R J 42 GA 5021 and R J 42 GA 0756 — were set ablaze, said Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Ram Bahadur KC of District Police Office.
The arson attack took place at around 3 am. Four dozers were used to pile mud around the trucks to contain the fire from spreading elsewhere.
The fire was doused after fire engines from Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) arrived two hours later. There were no human casualties in the attack.
The arson attack on two trucks parked at the roadside near a settlement, petrol station and a gas industry spread fear among the local residents.
The fire also snapped an electric wire causing a blackout. Authorities have suspected the Biplav-led CPN to be behind the arson attack. The incident has caused a traffic snarl in the area.Follow @gorkhapost
