Madhesi protesters demand release of students from police custody
Nepal, Jan 25 (ANI): Madhesi agitators burnt tyres and raised anti-government slogans demanding release of five innocent students arrested by the Nepal police in Birgunj. They blamed Nepal police for targeting innocent students. In a separate protest, Madhesis burnt the copies of Nepal constitution as they rejected a constitutional amendment passed by the Parliament on January 24. They called the amendment as “incomplete” as it did not address their concerns over redrawing federal boundaries. The agitating Madhesi community is demanding demarcation of provinces, fixing of electoral constituencies on the basis of population and proportional representation, and has launched a protest for months that has claimed at least 55 lives.
