Indefinite curfew imposed in Kalikot again

KALIKOT: Curfew that was lifted earlier for two hours at 8:00 am this morning has been imposed again in Kalikot.

The curfew will continue until further notice, according to the Kalikot District Administration Office (DAO).

The local administration clamped a curfew on Saturday in view of the prevailing tense situation following the death of a temporary police recruit Bibek Aidi in a police firing on Friday.

According to the Chief District Officer (CDO), Badrinath Gaire, the curfew has been imposed again as there was no sign of the tense situation coming under control.

Meanwhile, a discussion is underway at the DAO among the victim side, civil society, political parties and the DAO itself to resolve the matter, said CDO Gaire.
