Nepal Police arrest `army personnel` of little-known group
Kathmandu: Nepal Police on Friday arrested a
group of 16 people in combat dress claiming to be part of an
`army` of a little-known party in the country.
The group, wearing combat dress, belonged to
little-known Rastriya Samamukti Party. They were arrested at a
police check post at Nagdhunga, the main entry point to
Kathmandu from southern Nepal, according to the police.
They identified themselves as the "army" of Rastriya
Samamukti Party and were heading to the capital to participate
in a party programme, the police said.
The police said they will investigate the matter.
The arrest of the Rastriya Samamukti Party cadres comes amid
the deepening political crisis in the country after Parliament

electing a new prime minister could derail the 2006 peace
process. "There will be chaos. All the government`s plans and
policies will be affected," an expert warned.
