Kathmandu, Aug 30 (UNI) Nepal Police have shot dead Kaushal Sahani alias John, the chief of underground armed outfit Terai Army, responsible for several explosions in the Himalayan nation.
''Sahani along with his bodyguard were shot dead by police in Raghunathpur area of Rautahat district on Friday night,'' Nepalnews reports quoting police said.
