Why Bhojraj?



Nawalparasi - Sixty-year-old Bhojraj woke up at dawn to set up his small tea stall. Just as he was stirring in some tea, a bullet hit him. With no one around, he died alone. Bhojraj was one of the first victims of the Maoists' barrage of fire that preceeded their attack on Sunuwal police station in Nawalaparasi on 26 October. Six policemen and one office staff were also killed, proving the Maoists are not paying any heed to their leaders. The incident contravenes the direct orders of Maoist supremo Prachanda who said before Tihar that the Maoists would not destroy infrastructure, kill ordinary citizens or low ranking security personnel. That should have been enough to keep safe a lonely, impoverished old man who was just passing by with his tea trolley.
