Cadres belonging to CPN-Maoist barged into the office of Nepal Derivative Exchange (NDEX) at Tinkune in the outskirt of Kathmandu causing a damage of more than Rs 1.5 million as an extortion drive.

Issuing a statement, the NDEX has asked the government to take stern action against the culprits and demanded compensation against the damage to its property.
