Nepal forces vendors off Kathmandu streets

Legislation prohibits vendors in Kathmandu and gives authority to police to confiscate their goods.

    Municipal officers and inspectors have been chasing vendors on the streets of Kathmandu, using force when necessary.

    A law banning vendors was passed in February, prohibiting vendors and giving authority to police to confiscate their goods.

    Vendors claim they are being doubly victimised as they still have to pay shopkeepers to sell their wares outside shop windows.
