Injured top Madhesi leader being flown to Delhi

Kathmandu, Jan 1 (IANS) A top Madhesi leader who suffered injuries in a clash between the agitating Madhesi Morcha and the police at the Biratnagar-Jogbani border last Saturday, was being flown to New Delhi on Friday for further treatment, a party official said.

Sadbhawana Party chairman Rajendra Mahto is one of the key leaders heading the over four-month-old agitation in Nepal’s southern plains by Madhesi political parties and ethnic groups of the Nepal Terai demanding amendments in the new Constitution which they deem discriminatory and ignoring their rights.

According to Manish Suman, the party’s general secretary, Mahto was taken from Nepal’s Dharan city, where he was being treated for his injuries, and flown to Kathmandu on Friday afternoon. He was scheduled to leave for New Delhi on an Indian Airlines flight later on Friday.

Mahto received injuries on his head, hand and leg. Two fingers of his left hand were broken in the clash.

Attending doctors said that though he has marginally recovered from his injuries, he is now suffering from high level of blood sugar and blood pressure.

He will be taken to Medanta in Gurgaon for treatment, according to Suman.
