Indian national fatally stabbed in Kathmandu

Kathmandu, Dec 29 (UNI) An Indian national has been killed in a drunken brawl at a hotel in Pingalasthan, Kathmandu.
The incident took place on Wednesday night.
Police said Aditya Gurung, who was working with Maiti Nepal, was fatally stabbed by a staff member of Ambadablam Hotel.
Deputy Superintendent of Police Anupam Shrestha, chief of Metropolitan Police Circle in Gaushala, on Thursday said the hotel receptionist, Doni Sherpa, and four others were arrested in connection to the incident.
Gurung and some of his friends had been drinking at the hotel bar on Wednesday night when the fight broke out after the hotel staff members reportedly refused them to serve more drinks.
DSP Shrestha said seriously injured Gurung was taken to the Sinamangal-based Kathmandu Medical College, where the doctors declared him dead.
Gurung, who hailed from Siliguri in West Bengal state of India, was working as a basketball coach at Maiti Nepal for past several years, according to Anuradha Koirala, the founder of the organisation.
