What do you say about Nepal Police and their action against peaceful protesters?


Friday, 12 June 2020


Yesterday, over a thousand people gathered near Bhatbhateni in Kathmandu for a peaceful protest which was organised by youths through different social media platforms demanding that the government improve quarantine conditions, make wider use of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests and make public the Covid-19 expenditure report.

In Kathmandu and across the country, young people took to the streets to protest the government’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, demand more polymerase chain reaction tests and better quarantine conditions.

This was the second iteration of a series of peaceful protests first organised by youths on Tuesday, when they were met with water cannons and batons. Like then, most of the participants in Thursday’s protest were young people, holding placards that called into question the KP Sharma Oli government’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
