PARSA, Feb 21: The curfew imposed in the Birgunj area for an indefinite period due to security concerns has been relaxed to some extent. 

The curfew enforced by the District Administration Office, Parsa, for the past 36 hours was lifted from 6:00 AM to 11:00 AM today for the convenience of the local residents, said Chief District Officer (CDO) of Parsa, Dinesh Sagar Bhusal.

The curfew will be further relaxed after assessing the situation, said CDO Bhusal, adding that the decision to ease the curfew was also taken so that the daily life of the locals in the financial city of the country would not be adversely affected. 

He reiterated that the restrictive order would be relaxed based on the situation and need. The situation in Birgunj is normal at present.

The curfew was clamped after a clash was about to erupt in a demonstration staged by Hindu Samaj after the protest by two parties. The local administration had imposed an indefinite curfew since last Monday evening.

It was effective in the areas within Nagwa Chowk in the east, Tilawe Bridge in the west, Parwanipur Parsa in north and Miteri Pul (Custom) in the south of Birgunj city.
