Three young men who chanted slogans against Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal last week have been sent to prison.
The Kathmandu District Administration Office had ordered his release on Rs 5,000 bail in a case of indecent behavior. But they were sent to prison after they failed to pay the bail amount, according to Deputy Superintendent of Police Niranjan Bhatta at District Police Range, Kathmandu.
The three youths chanted slogans during an event attended by Prime Minister Dahal in New Baneshwar, Kathmandu, last Tuesday. The police then arrested them and later filed an indecent behavior case against them.
Those arrested are 23-year-old Uddhav Basnet from Solukhumbu, 18-year-old Biplav Khadka from Bajhang and Som Sharma from Baglung.
In their statement to the police, the three have said that they are associated with the Nepal Independent Youth Campaign.
