PM-elect Dahal orders release of Khatri held for chanting slogans against him


Kathmandu, Aug 4: Prime Minister elect Pushpa Kamal Dahal has ordered police to release Shayam Khatri, who was arrested on Wednesday on the charge of shouting slogan against Dahal.
Khatri was arrested for marching and chanting slogan against Dahal in a semi-nude state at a programme organised by the All Nepal National Independent Students Union (Revolutionary) in Maitighar Mandala to celebrate the election of Dahal as PM.
Dahal’s son Prakash on behalf of Dahal telephoned Inspector General of Police Upendra Kanta Aryal today and requested him to release Khatri, a source said.
“The Prime Minister-elect asked for the release of Khatri saying it is injustice to arrest anyone just for organising peaceful protest in a democracy. I requested the IGP in that line,” Prakash said. In response, police said that Khatri would be released today. RSS
