KAPILVASTU, Dec 5: The local authorities have designated Taulihawa – the district headquarters of Kapilvastu – as a prohibited zone from 6 am this morning.
A meeting of the District Security Committee presided over by District Security Committee Chairman and Acting Chief District Officer (CDO), Bharat Kumar Budhathoki, took the decision to invoke the legal provisions related to prohibitory zones on Sunday night.
