TIMEFRAME expected from 9/17/2018, 12:00 AM until 9/17/2018, 11:59 PM (UTC). COUNTRY/REGION Nepal


On Monday, September 17, thousands of people - under the citizens' initiative #JusticeForNirmala - demonstrated peacefully in the capital Kathmandu to ask the government to take more severe actions against the perpetrators of sexual aggressions and homicides. Protesters gathered in the afternoon (local time) at Maitighar Mandala and marched towards New Baneshwar. No related incidents were reported, with the exception of increased road traffic congestion in the city.


On a related note, individuals visiting Kathmandu, especially areas popular with foreign nationals (e.g. Thamel, Sanepa, Kupondo), should be cautious when walking around due to a significant risk of assaults and robberies, notably at night. Report any suspicious behavior, crimes, or misdemeanor to the local police.
