Police arrested four persons from Gulariya, district headquarters of Bardiya, for waving black flags to Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Health on August 23.
The arrested ones are Harpal Singh, Irphan Sheikh, Rajit Ram Kurmi and Ram Manohar Yadav.
According FF's representative in the district, they were held by the police.
Freedom Forum shows concern over the arrest, for it has violated citizens' right to peaceful protest. It is in deed the violation of freedom of expression. Such constitutional right of the citizens must not be breached. The government is therefore used to respect citizen's right to freedom of expression.
