Nepalese shopkeeper treated in hospital after brutal beating by ‘extortion racket’

A Nepalese shopkeeper was brutally beaten in his mini-market in Lisbon last week by four men who he claims are acting as an extortion racket. “They want me to pay to keep this place open,” he told reporters. “But it is mine!” Ramesh Bastola has been treated in hospital while PSP officers study CCTV images. The men were not wearing masks or with their faces covered.
