Apparently under pressure
following the outcry over their assault on two Indian priests,
the Maoists have withdrawn their ongoing agitation in the
Pashupatinath temple but will stage "peaceful protests".
At least 20 people were arrested
today for taking part in the violent protest by Maoist-led
`Struggle Committee` here to oppose the government`s decision
to appoint two Indian priests in the Pashupatinath Temple.
