Thamel protest

KATHMANDU: Demanding the resignation of home minister Bhim Rawal, foreign currency entrepreneurs on Sunday called a daylong lockout of the money exchange counters in Thamel to protest the January 4 broad daylight shootout in which a proprietor of Sunrise Money Exchange narrowly escaped. Transaction of foreign currency, remittance and money exchange came to a grinding halt after the entrepreneurs shuttered down their businesses demanding the government to book the culprits.
