Attack with torch

On November 20, Irfan Ali, reporter for the News 24 television from Birgunj, a city in the southern plains of the country, was attacked by the cadres of the agitating United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF).

"I was visualizing the torch rally organized by the UDMF on the evening. All of a sudden, some people moved to me saying 'I was a journalist and not making good news'. One of them hurled a torch on me which burnt my shirt and injured on shoulder. However, I escaped the serious injury."
