Nepal: Men Threatening to Murder and Kidnap Pastors Arrested

Cops nab gang terrorising Christians

ICC Note:

Two men in Nepal were arrested for threatening to blow up churches, murder Christians and kidnap Pastors. What a relief to have them in custody. It’s refreshing to see the police take these threats seriously, stopping the individuals before something truly horrible could happen. 

07/04/2012 Nepal (TheHimalayan)- Detectives have nabbed two members of an extortion racket that had stirred a wave of panic amongst Christians in the Valley.

Police said Tamang and Pariyar had repeatedly threatened to blow up the church and finish off his family if Thapa did not pay the extortion amount of Rs 2 million.

The duo had also demanded extortion money from Devi Prasad Bhujel, pastor of Khumaltar Church and threatened him for refusing to meet their demand.

They had threatened to detonate a bomb and kidnap many more pastors of Valley-based churches to serve their purpose.

“They had made the Christian community panic through bombing, kidnapping and death threats. However, timely response leading to their arrest has thwarted any untoward incident,” an investigator said.

Harried by threats of ‘serious consequences’ in the event of failure to meet their demands, the victims had turned to police for their physical and institutional security.
