Lawyers not held, claim Chure protesters
Activists of Chure-Bhawar Ekata Samaj have claimed that they had not held or detained 33 lawyers as reported.
According to talks coordinator of Samaj Babu Thapa, they had made arrangements for respectful stay overnight of the lawyers after their bus was not allowed to move. They are said to have been allowed to move in the morning with security escort.
Earlier reports said 33 lawyers were held by Chure protesters from Hariaun of Sarlahi district on Thursday afternoon.
