The protesters tore down a shared bus in Lalitpur

The protesters have ‘dropped off’ on a shared bus in Lalitpur. At ET Chowk in Lalitpur, near the petrol pump, Biplav cadres hurled stones at the back of a shared bus (Ba 5 Kha 8755).

According to Metropolitan Police Office spokesperson Sushil Singh Rathore, the bus suffered minor damage. Despite the CPN (Maoist) calling for a Nepal Bandh on Tuesday, the impact of the bandh in the Kathmandu Valley has been minimal.

The Nepal People’s Party (NPP) had called for a Nepal Bandh today saying that it would put pressure on the government to immediately repeal the price hike on daily necessities including petroleum products.

Although public transport is slow, private vehicles are running smoothly on the road. The traffic on the road is slowly increasing. There is heavy presence of security personnel in the chowk and protesters have been arrested from different parts of the country.

Police have arrested some people trying to stop them. According to SP Sushil Singh Rathore of the Metropolitan Police Office, Ranipokhari, 21 protesters were arrested from Kathmandu and one from Lalitpur.
