Kathmandu,10 bomb nishkriya, 50 giraftar. At least eight vehicles were torched and vandalised, while over 10 ‘bombs’ were disposed off on Monday, the first day of the 10-day banda called by the CPN-Maoist-led poll-opposing parties. Though the government deployed security personnel in large numbers on major roads and highways, vandalism began early morning, while some reported bombs turned out to be a hoax. Police said they arrested over 50 banda supporters across the country. Except early morning, banda supporters were not seen on the roads throughout the day, as they apparently wanted to avoid arrest. In the afternoon, some youth groups and locals took out rallies in Kathmandu to protest the banda . They said no one has the right to block people’s fundamental right to vote. UCPN (Maoist) supporters in Kathmandu Constituency-1 also took out a motorcycle rally to defy the banda . काठम
