In an unexpected turn of events this Friday, human rights worker Gyanendra Bista was apprehended by the police while on his motorbike. The arrest coincided with ongoing pro-monarchy and anti-government protests led by the controversial figure, Durga Prasai.

Bista, who insisted he was simply heading to his office, was captured on video in a heated discussion with the police. The video, embedded in this report, shows Bista confronting the officers about the reasons for stopping and arresting pedestrians. “Can’t we walk? Is this Ganatantra (democracy)?” he questions, highlighting concerns about civil liberties.
