Nepal Minister survives khukuri attack on day of appointment!

What can one say about the security situation in Nepal when a newly appointed Minister gets attacked by assailants armed with khukuris just outside his home?
On Monday morning, PM Jhalanath Khanal expanded his cabinet to include 12 new Ministers, one of which is Minister for Energy, Gokarna Bista. On Monday evening, Bista was attacked by motorcycle-borne assailants who were armed with a khukuri as he came out of his Samakhushi-based residence following an unknown call. If the Ministers are not safe in their homes, how safe are the ordinary citizens of Nepal? The security situation of Kathmandu is going from bad to worse while the Cabinet remains without a Home Minister!
