KATHMANDU: The police resorted to using firearms to apprehend drug traffickers in Gothatar, Kathmandu.

According to Kathmandu Valley Crime Investigation Office’s Police Superintendent, Rabindra Regmi, the police were compelled to open fire on Wednesday afternoon during an operation targeting drug dealers.
