According to Superintendent of Police Bir Bahadur Budha Magar of the district police office, a major clash occurred between the police and locals as the police tried to transport the seized fertiliser to the Gaur Customs Office.
The police fired four rounds of tear gas to bring the situation under control after the locals started pelting stones.
“Police have successfully brought some sacks of fertiliser to the office, and more security personnel from the area police offices and Armed Police Force have also been deployed to control the situation and bring the rest of the sacks.
Further investigation is going on to find the culprits,” said Magar.
