The agitating transport laborers vandalized the Lotse Mall at Naya Buspark in Kathmandu.

The transport workers on Monday evening took to the streets, leading to clashes, vandalism, and arson in the area by protesting the traffic police’s decision to hike the fine for traffic rules violations. They also vandalized the Lotse Mall run near the Naya Buspark.

The workers have demanded to scrap the exorbitant penalty amount for traffic rules violations, the release of the suspended license, provision of the physical infrastructure parking pick and drop, and others.

Likewise, the protestors have stolen mobile phones from the shops run in the business complex.

Human Resource Development Chief of Lotse multipurpose company, Pankaj Malla, said that property worth a million is destroyed by vandalism and looting.

Tensions rose high in the areas after the workers under the banners of different political parties-aligned associations staged the protests. The protestors pelted stones at the police and also set two police vans on fire this evening. Likewise, the protestors torched a temporary police beat located at Balaju Chowk, according to the Senior Superintendent of Police Himalaya Kumar Shrestha. It is said that 10 police persons and some protestors also sustained injuries in the protest.
