DSP at the Area Police Office, Kohalpur Hem Bahadur Shahi has been called to the District Police Office on Monday following police atrocities in Kohalpur on Sunday.
DSP Shahi was recommended for departmental action three weeks ago by the probe committee formed by Province 5 Police after demanding a goat from district treasurer of Nepal Tarun Dal, the youth wing of main opposition Nepali Congress (NC), Keshar Khadka before Dashain.
But Shahi, who had threatened to pierce Khadka's thigh (with bullets) after the audio recording of him demanding goat became public, continued to serve at Kohalpur.
He has now been summoned to the district headquarters following police atrocities on Sunday.
Chief District Officer (CDO) of Banke Kumar Bahadur Khadka confirmed Shahi's summon and called it a regular exercise.
An all-party meeting on Monday had urged the government to form a committee to investigate the incident and bear all expenses for treatment of those injured during the clashes with police.
The locals had demanded immediate action and transfer of Shahi accusing the police of using excessive force against school students and opening fire on them.
Two students were shot on the leg in Kohalpur during the clash after a truck hit a school girl at around 10 Sunday morning. The two students were airlifted to Kathmandu later on the day for treatment.
Almost 40 including DSP Shahi and around a dozen police personnel were injured in the clashes since 10 in the morning. The District Administration Office had imposed curfew in Kohalpur since three Sunday afternoon to take the situation under control.
Prakriti Chand, 12, of Kohalpur-11 was injured when the truck (Na 2 Kha 9459) hit a scooter (Bhe 6 Pa 2740) Sunday morning.
The seventh grader at Tribhuvan Higher Secondary School, who was riding pillion on the scooter, is critically injured and has lost both her feet.
The irate locals and school children set the truck on fire and vandalized other vehicles after the accident.
The police started to use force instead of trying to convince the students to control the situation, the locals and students accuse.
They entered the school after the students fled to escape from the aggressive police. They did not listen even when the teachers urged them to not thrash students inside the school premises and indiscriminately beat teachers and students alike.
They dragged teacher Indra BC and other students from inside the classrooms, according to teacher Rishi Devkota who claimed that eight to 10 students have been arrested.
The school has around 2,500 students and they all attacked the police following the latter's atrocities. Students of plus-two also joined the junior students after their classes ended at around the same time.
The students started to pelt stones at the police and the latter retaliated. The police beat local Nepali Congress (NC) leader Krishna Karki when he urged them to not pelt stones at school students and also thrashed Chairman of Kohalpur Chamber of Commerce Chakra Adhikari.
The sheer number of students and locals overwhelmed the police who retreated back to the police station. The students pelted stones even at the police station and torched the police canteen.
The police fired around two dozen blank rounds and tear gas shells in equal numbers to take the situation under control.
CDO Kumar Bahadur Khadka suspected that the situation may have gone out of control due to attempts to politicize the incident.
