Normal life continues to be affected all across the country including the capital on the second day of the-three day banda called by Nepal Federation of Indigenous Nationalities (NEFIN) on Monday.
Educational institutions, businesses and marketplaces have remained closed. Commuters are facing tough time in the Kathmandu Valley, with transport services coming to a grinding halt.
Security is heavily deployed at different places and major thoroughfares of the town. NEFIN activists have gathered at major junctions and several of them are seen patrolling on the streets to ensure a complete shutdown.
According to reports, a clash between banda enforcers and local residents has erupted at Imadol in Lalitpur, leaving five of the locals injured. The fight ensued after the locals resorted to retaliation after a group of banda organizers turned violent and vandalized a two-wheeler.
