Romania: In a follow-up to the incident at the “Yaad Nepali Musical Festival-2” in Romania, where Suman Gurung threw a beer bottle at singer Prakash Saput, Romanian authorities are said to be initiating proceedings to take action against Gurung.
Gurung’s actions during the music program led to disorder and caused significant damage, said event organizer Naresh Giri. Consequently, the organizers filed a complaint with the local authorities, providing evidence and witness statements.
Gurung, if convicted, will face charges related to assault, public disturbance, and property damage as per Romanian laws.
Singer Prakash Saput and the event organizers have cooperated with the authorities throughout the legal process, providing their statements and supporting evidence.
