» » Two hundred over arrested during transport strike

Kathmandu, May 26: Police arrested more than 200 persons from various places in the Kathmandu Valley for vandalizing vehicles during the transport strike.
Altogether 202 persons were held for vandalizing vehicles during the strike called by the transport entrepreneurs in protest of the government's decision to hike fine for violation of the traffic rules, according to Police Spokesperson Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIGP) Madhav Prasad Joshi.
No incident of vandalization and arrest were reported from other parts of the country although the strike was enforced nation-wide, DIGP Joshi shared.
Public transport service was not available on the road across the country, including the capital city, as the transport entrepreneurs and workers associated with various transport associations including the Nepal National Transport Entrepreneurs Association protested the government's recent move to hike penalty with effect from May 14.
