Public retaliates traffic obstruction by protestors

KOSH RAJ KOIRALA
KATHMANDU, April 10: Street protestors usually think they are free to do whatever they wish and the public will take it lying down, whatever hassles they have to face as a consequence.

But on Friday, a public that has been bearing the burnt of traffic obstructions in Kathmandu streets every other day became united and jointly retaliated against the protestors.

The irate public not only chased after members of the All Nepal National Independent Student Union-Revolutionary (ANNISU-R), who were obstructing traffic in front of Thapathali Engineering Campus, but also forced the authorities to apprehend protestors involved in vandalizing their bikes and make them pay for the damage.

The public wrath came after a group of ANNISU-R students burnt a newly-bought CBZ Extreme motorcycle belonging to one Sudeep Gurung, alleging that he along with others attempted to defy their road obstruction when their campus unit President Yuvraj Dahal was addressing a corner meeting on the road just outside campus. Two cycles were also set ablaze on the occasion.

The ruling Maoist-affiliated ANNISU-R students staged a one-hour chakkajam and demonstration in front of all public campuses in Kathmandu starting at 8 a.m. to protest a decision by Tribhuvan University to hike examination fees by almost 300 percent.

The agitated public then engaged in verbal altercations with the protesting ANNISU-R students numbering about 30 before finally chasing them away from the road and from the campus itself. The public beat up over a dozen students, some of them innocent ones, in course of the clash with the ANNISU-R inside the campus.

Their anger still unspent, the public then smashed dozen of window panes, vandalized three laboratories – physics, chemistry and mechanical – and also demolished the outer wall of the campus.

The irate public then set ablaze some furniture, two motorcycles and three bicycles parked inside campus premises before the campus management could assure them of initiatives to compensate for the damaged motorcycle.

The protest by the public left traffic movement along the Maitighar-Thapathali section affected till late afternoon.

Police said they have arrested two students in connection with the burning of Gurung’s motorcycle.

Inspector Prajjwol Maharjan, chief of Metropolitan Police Sector Office, Singha Durbar, said they have initiated legal action against the arrested students.

Bhola Siwakoti, Chief District Officer of Kathmandu, said he has asked the campus administration, the Dean of the Institute of Engineering (IOE) and the TU Registrar to make necessary arrangements for compensating the victims as they were not involved in the protest. “We will make those involved in vandalizing property pay for the damage if they are identified,” he said, adding: “Else, the campus or the state needs to compensate the victims to ensure there is rule of law in the country.”

The campus administration has shut down the college until further notice.

About time, I would say.  Good for them


Thugocracy has gone too long.  Obviously, police can't control these thugs and their bandhs and chakkajams.  It's good that public has risen and took care of this nonsense.

damaged motorcycle."

The public did this because of anger fueled by the burning of one motorcycle. Who's going to pay for the damages within the campus.

Wah wah to both the parties involved.

There should be some way for these nonsensical protesters to stop. The protest organizers usually try to take advantage of the lawlessness in the country. I believe any protests that leads to jam, hadtal, burning vehicles or anything should stop. In democracy, everyone is free to use his freedom of right, even freedom of right to protest..but not the way u r doing in our country. Learn some culture guyz, it's about time!!

(Meant for everyone who are involved in nonsensical protests...)

Well, it's not just about Maoist..it's an in-general kinda scenario. Let's look at the nature of protest organize by anyone, and it starts with vandalism of vehicles, road jam, forcibly closing educational institution, industries etc...Why wud anyone protest in a way that disturbs the life of many other people?? Do the f*king protesters really care about anyone of us?? A hell no!!
Guyz protests for ur rights, but not in a way that ur gonna disturb other people's life.

Pokharako keto,


Agree with much of what you say. But who's less than who in Nepal - didn't we in one sense reward the Maoists for their violence? My friend, you sow the wind and you reap the whirlwind and we Nepalis have to pay our dues - all of us without exceptions.
