KATHMANDU — At least three vehicles were vandalized by transport entrepreneurs and workers during their nationwide transport strike (chakka jam) on Thursday morning.

According to police, banda enforcers have vandalized a TATA Sumo, Ba 1 Jha, 4813 and a Taxi, Ba 2 Jha, 2000, at Teku and another Taxi, Ba 1 Jha 1599, at Maharajgunj this morning.

The transport entrepreneurs have enforced chakkajam in the Kathmandu Valley since early morning today in protest of the increment of the penalty slapped for breaching traffic rules.

The transport entrepreneurs have brought public transport to halt protesting the hefty rise in the traffic police fine to the range of Rs 500 to Rs 1,500 from existing Rs 25 to Rs 200 that came in to effect since last May 14.

Deputy Superintendant of Police (DSP) at Metropolitan Traffic Police Division Gyanendra Pakhrin, no public vehicles except those carrying most essential goods are plying on the road in the capital today.

The Traffic Act was amended on 29 June 2015 introducing a new provision to increase penalty for routing traffic rules to be effective from May 14.

Meanwhile, Police have arrested a total of 172 strike enforcers from Kathmandu for allegedly obstructing the traffic movement, said SSP Sharad Chand, Spokesperson at Metropolitan city Police office.
