YCL resorts to chakka jam

BARDIYA: Young Communist League on Monday staged an indefinite chakka jam in Bardiya demanding the release of the outfit’s regional coordinator Saroj Shahi. Bardiya police had arrested Shahi on the charge of motorbike theft a few days ago and subsequently handed him over to Banke police. YCL Bardiya district president Binay Tharu said the chhaka jam would continue until Shahi’s release. Cadres of the Maoist youth wing brought the traffic to a standstill by burning tyres and placing tractor on the road.
