Mehbub Asif, a visa officer at the Pakistani embassy in the Nepalese capital Kathmandu, miraculously managed to survive a gun attack Thursday, renewing speculations over the growth of the criminal world in Nepal and global gang rivalries. According to media reports, the 36-year old officer was on his way to work when two gunmen fired at him at around 8.50 am, hitting him in the arm and stomach. The daring attack was carried out on the busy Kathmandu Ring Road which is frequented by thousands of automobiles every day.
