KATHMANDU, Feb 11: A group of women activists on Thursday picketed the Department of Immigration protesting against the proposed regulation which requires women below 40 to take prior consent from their families and respective local bodies before traveling abroad.
Claiming that the proposed regulation is against the citizens’ right to travel, and displaying their passports, they shouted slogans against the proposed rule.
The Department of Immigration has sent a proposal to the Home Ministry which is yet to be approved as regulation.
