Even Buddha boy gets angry.* Ram Bahadur Bamjan, popularly known as Buddha boy, is back in the news after capturing and beating 17 locals near Manaharwa village in the Bara district of Nepal. He reportedly held the victims for 24 hours and beat them with sticks. Why this happened is unclear. The Himalayan Times reports that it was because the locals were “trying to scuttle his meditation,” while they were collecting vegetables in the Ratanpuri forest. A nepalnews.com article, however, claims that Bamjan was upset with the locals for taking part in the animal sacrifices of the Gadhimai festival—claims Bamjan has denied. See previous Buddha boy blog coverage here. *He claims that he was not angry during the beating. – See more at: http://tricycle.org/trikedaily/buddha-boy-back-vengeance/#sthash.gzDS3bjp.dpuf

Speaking to a team of police and journalists who had gone to Halkhoriya forest of Bara, where Bomjon meditates, to inquire him on charges of beating up villagers, Bomjon conceded he beat up villagers.
“They came to the place where I was meditating and tried to disturb me by making noise, smoking and mimicking me. So, I slapped them as a punishment,” said Bomjon.
Bomjon had beat up 17 villagers of a nearby Manaharwa village who had come to the jungle to collect fodder. A police squad went to Bomjon’s place with journalists when the villagers filed a complaint at the District Police Office, Bara. The villagers have accused Bomjon and his aides of detaining them and beating them.
Bomjon denied the charges that he took the villagers in control and beat them severely.”
