Madhesh: Nepali Police Use Force to Arrest Activist During Peaceful Protest

Last Friday, 11 May 2018, several Madhesi activists were arrested during a peaceful protest in Janakpur, during Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Nepal. As the Alliance for Independent Madhesh (AIM) organised a demonstration to call for a free Madhesh, twenty-eight activists were arrested for displaying pro-Madhesh posters and shouting slogans, as reported yesterday on our website.

Watch the video of the protest leading to the arrest of activist Sitla Yadav, highlighting the censorship and brutality of the Nepali police forces.
