Kukri Fight: Clashes Erupt Between Nepali Locals, Chinese Workers Over Construction Work



Chinese citizens working in Nepal have reportedly clashed with the local Nepali people who were working on a hydropower plant. As per reports, the locals in Nepal’s Marsyangdi clashed with the employers of a Chinese company building a hydropower plant in Lamjung over coronavirus scare.

Tourists, Workers Stranded As India, Nepal Seal Border Due To Coronavirus Pandemic

As per reports in TOI quoting a local online media portal, Khabarhub, the villagers opposed the movement of trucks carrying construction materials of Nyadi Hydropower Project based at Thutobesi in Marsyangi Rural Municipality-6 of Lamjung district.

The locals were disturbed as the workers had just come from China – the country where the coronavirus first originated and killed over 3200 people. The infection since then has spread globally killing over 42,000 people.

According to reports, the residents obstructed the approach to their village to prevent random movement of people. However, when two trucks used for transporting construction materials of the hydropower plant tried to enter their village by removing the obstruction, the furious youths came out protesting.

Nepali news portal Khabarhub added that the Chinese retaliated by picking up the indigenous dagger ‘Khukuris’ to intimidate the locals. A Nepali journalist Nabin Kuinkel was quoted as saying that the locals lost their cool after the Chinese brought the construction materials by clearing the barbed wire put up along the road.

A local, Karan Thapa, said that the Chinese revenged when the local administration objected to their violation of the lockdown. “The locals protested after the Chinese violated the government’s instruction to refrain from coming out of the house,” he added. The police, meanwhile, have called for a meeting between the two sides to seek a solution.
