On 21 November, a contractor attacked a reporter in Nepalgunj, a city in the southern plains of the mid west of Nepal over the news he wrote on irregularity on construction of a bridge.
"I had written a news story as 'payment to contractor before completion of bridge construction' in the Nagarik daily three months back. But, the contractor Ganesh Shahi called me in the evening, came to the office, spoke foul on me and manhandled. As there were other friends in the office (regional office), the attack was averted," said Arjun Oli, reporter to the Nagarik daily from Nepalgunj city.
