The complaint demands maximum punishment against Dr. Bhattarai, saying they faced false blame for kidnapping a lawmaker of Janata Samajbadi Party, Dr. Surendra Yadav.

They also said that they as well as their families faced mental torture and disrespect due to false blame. They said lawmaker Dr. Bhattarai blamed them for false kidnapping with the objective of taking political benefit with ill intension.
