Katmandu: An unidentified armed group on Saturday evening shot dead Central President of World Hindu Youth Association (WHYA) Kashi Tiwari in bordering town of Birgunj in southern part of the country.

The assailants, who wore mask, targeted Tiwari with three bullets when he reached local Shiva Parvati Temple in Ashokbatika. The 41-year old Tiwari breathed his last while being rushed to nearby Narayani Zonal Hospital, according to police.

Eyewitnesses said the assailants came in two motorcycles and fled the scene soon after shooting at Tiwari. Tiwari succumbed to injuries on his chest due to the bullets.

Tiwari had reached to Ashokbatika in order to inspect the construction work of a temple building in Ashokbatika premises. The temple was being constructed with the parliamentary fund received by Tarai Madhes Democratic Party (TMDP) lawmaker Bimal Kediya.

Late Tiwari was a real estate businessman by profession. He came into limelight after WHYA retaliated with the Maoists who enforced indefinite general strikes in Birgunj in May. Dozen of Maoist cadres including the party lawmakers Prabhu Shah, Shiva Chandra Kushwaha and central member Anjana Bishankhe were injured during the retaliation.

According to sources close to his family, Tiwari had been receiving death threats over phone from Maoists following the incident of retaliation.
