Rastriya Ekata Abhiyan, a Nepalese civil society group held a demonstration against China in Biratnagar on Thursday to protest alleged Chinese interference, in Nepal's internal affairs and encroachment of Nepali territory at various places along the northern border, according to Khabarhub, a digital news outlet.
Earlier, demonstrators marched from Mahendra Chowk to Bhatta Chowk in Biratnagar shouting slogans against Chinese expansion and undue interference in the top political circle of the country.
The protestors also burned the picture of Chinese President Xi Jinping, Khabarhub said.
Binay Yadav, coordinator of Rastriya Ekata Abhiyan, said that the activists were compelled to take to the streets as the Chinese intelligence agency Ministry of State Security (MSS) was intensifying its influence in the country.
He also decried China's unofficial blockade at border points with the northern neighbour not allowing Nepali medical students studying in Chinese universities, whose future hangs in the balance, to return.
