Kathmandu, Jan. 20 (AFP): Nightclubs in Kathmandu closed indefinitely from today after a bloody brawl between rival discotheque owners left one of them dead, police said.
“All the discos are closed to carry out the investigation of the case,” said police deputy superintendent Kuber Singh Rana. Police say Raju Gorkhali, the owner of the Royal disco went on Friday to the Babylon disco and left without paying the bill, but called an hour later telling the Babylon owner Rakesh Limbu to come over and get the cash.
When Limbu reached the rival nightclub he got into an argument and was attacked with swords. He was killed on the spot and two others were injured and sent to hospital, police said. Police said they were searching for Gorkhali, the owner of the discotheque located near the royal palace in downtown Kathmandu. Kathmandu is home to six discotheques.
