Dhangadi ? Villagers in Dhangadi captured a policeman who has been accused of terrorising locals and handed him over to the Kailali district police station. For the past three days, police constable Dhan Bahadur Chand had been robbing passers-by near Campus Chowk in broad daylight by brandishing a fake pistol. And at night, he extorted restaurant owners, robbed motorcyclists and harassed girls. He intimidated the people by calling himself a Maoist and even looted the deputy chief of Dhangadi. Fortunately, the villagers decided not to take this and got together to capture him. After beating him severely, they handed Chand over to the police, who assured them that strict action would be taken.
