University teachers threaten to disrupt FSU elections

Kathmandu: Issuing a press release on Friday, the Nepal University Teachers’ Association (NUTA) threatened it would not help in conducting the forthcoming TU examinations and elections to the Free Students Union if the government did not release the detainees, including president and general secretary of the NUTA, Professor Dr Bhupati Dhakal ‘Kamal’, and Rameshwor Upadhyaya, at the earliest.

A number of professors and intellectuals were arrested while they were taking part in an anti-autocracy rally organised by the NUTA on February 3.
