A general strike called by Dahal-Nepal faction of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) has affected the normal life in Kathmandu valley today.
It has been learnt that authorities have arrested strike enforcers from various locations in the capital amid tightened security. A taxi was set to fire while a few vehicles were vandalised in the early hours today.
