Amongst the dozens of vehicles vandalised by Maoist strike enforcers on Tuesday was a scooter belonging to a young mother of two at Chabahil. Despite the presence of security personnel in the area, protestors smashed the scooter and verbally abused the woman. The mother was in tears, and her traumatised children, aged eight and five, also began to cry. The Police managed to rescue her and the children, and whisked them away to safety.
