Police arrested two persons on Thursday on the charge of attacking Pandey, according to Superintendent of Police Sitaram Rijal, spokesperson for the District Police Range, Kathmandu (DPRK).
Pandey and other municipal police personnel were attacked when they went to evacuate the landless squatter settlement at Thapathali on November 28, 2022.
Pandey sustained head injuries and other police personnel were also injured in the attack.

KMC had lodged a complaint with the DPRK after the incident.
