KATHMANDU — Police on Monday detained a British traveler on the charge of illegally partaking in the sit-in launched by the Sanghiya Gathabandhan (Federal Alliance) while picketing Singha Durbar.

The detainee has been identified as Martin Benjamin Travers, a man in his mid-forties, holding passport number 512793532. He, however, had not carried his passport when he was taken in police custody.

Travers had landed in Nepal on March 9 this year on a three-month tourist visa.

Kathmandu’s chief district officer (CDO) Ram Krishna Subedi said that the activities of the British tourist were against Nepal’s constitution and against the immigration laws.

Nepal’s immigration law does not allow foreigners from taking part in the country’s domestic politics.

During preliminary investigation, Travers has reportedly claimed that he participated in the protest program without any political motives.

Some foreigners were seen taking part in the protests against the new constitution and incumbent government yesterday as well as today.

The Ministry of Home Affairs has informed that it is also investigating on other tourists participating in the protest programs with the support of visuals and still photos recorded by the security forces.
