KATHMANDU, May 10: Youths have staged a demonstration against the border encroachment by the southern neighbor India in front of the Baneshwar-based federal parliament building in Kathmandu.
Youths affiliated to the ‘Save the Border’ campaign, who tried to wave a black flag as a gesture of protest against the encroachment, clashed with the police.
Police took them under control as they approached the entrance of the parliament premises.
India, earlier on Friday inaugurated a strategic link road connecting Dharchula of the Indian State of Uttarakhand and the Tibetan Autonomous Region (TAR) of China via the Lipulekh Pass, a Nepali territory which lies in the country's northwestern frontier with China.
