Night ambulance



Jhapa-Ambulances have stopped their night services after drivers were harrased and attacked last week. As a result, many sick people and emergency cases have been jeopardised. Dinesh Magar, a helper from the Birta Jaycees ambulance, was wounded when soldiers opened fire on him late at night when he was unable to stop his ambulance while rushing to the hospital. He is now in intensive care at BP Koirala Hospital. The next day, Bimal Nepal, another ambulance driver from Nepal Red Cross, was mugged and severely beaten by an unknown group. "We can't save others if we die," says Bishnu Subedi of Sashidhar Ambulance Service. "How can an ambulance racing at 80-100 km/hour halt at every checking point?" he asks.
