Dhangadhi: Outrage has erupted in response to the disturbing incident involving the assault of Dr. Vikas Thapa and Dr. Prashant Bidari, both associated with Sancho Hospital in Hetauda Sub-Metropolis-1.
On a fateful Wednesday morning, a group comprising 8-10 individuals forcibly entered the hospital premises and subjected the two doctors from Sancho Hospital in Hetauda-1 to a physical assault.
