Gaur life returning to normalcy after 4-day tension

RAUTAHAT: Life in Rautahat district headquarters Gaur is returning to normalcy after four days of tension.

The city was tense after a teenage protester was killed in a firing during a police-protester clash on Sunday.

The Rautahat District Administration Office had been imposing an indefinite curfew in the area since Sunday 4 pm.

The curfew was gradually being relaxed before it was totally lifted from Thursday morning.

Chief District Officer Narahari Baral said clamping the restriction was unnecessary as the life was returning to normalcy now.

Many small shops have opened in the city since early morning. Security personnel in a large number have been deployed along the city roads while the denizens are moving ahead in their usual routine.

Locals said they wished no such incidents would repeat in the future.

Meanwhile, the agitating United Democratic Madhesi Front said it would stage a torch rally in Gaur today.

UDMF Rautahat district coordinator Ram Niwas Yadav said the alliance would continue its programmes from tomorrow.
