Ban on public gatherings

From Kantipur Online:

The district administration offices of Kathmandu and Lalitpur on Tuesday issued sweeping orders banning all kinds of public gatherings in areas within the Ring Road.

According to separate statements issued by the DAOs of Lalitpur and Kathmandu, the ban will be in place from Wednesday, just a day before the seven-party alliance’s pre-scheduled four-day general strike and capital-centred political showdown.

The statements issued by the chief district officers of the two districts said the ban was imposed due to the increasing violence and unruly activities in several parts of the Kathmandu Metropolis and Lalitpur Sub Metropolis.
