The irate cadres called the strike from 2 this afternoon demanding the government release UCPN (M) cadres who were arrested in connection with the conflict-era murder case.
The agitators were demanding the release of Chabilal Poudel and Bhimsen Poudel, who were detained in connection with the 2004 murder case of Gorkha's Krishna Adhikari.
