Kathmandu – Five Buddha statues have been damaged in Tilottama Municipality of Rupandehi district along the Belhiya-Bhairahawa-Butwal road section, on Wednesday night.

Each of the statues weighed over 120 kg. A local, Ramesh Gurung, claimed that this act of destruction was an attempt to damage social and religious tolerance within the locality.
