Kathmandu, Nov 26 (UNI) Various professional organisations staged a sit-in today protesting the Nepal government's failure in taking action against Maoist cadres.

Teachers, doctors, journalists, professors, heads of educational institutions and lawyers protested at the Central Secretariat of Nepal for two hours alleging that the maoists atrocities had increased.

They demanded action against the Maoist who manhandled Biratnagar doctors recently.

General Secretary of Nepal Medical Association Kedar Nar Singh KC demanded the resignation of the Home Minister. ''The medics would halt their services if the Maoists do not apologise immediately,'' he said.

Bhoj Bahadur Shah of Private and boarding school association said they would be compelled to shut all educational institutions if the guilty were not punished.

The agitators also declared a nationwide educational strike on November 29.

They also announced to put up 'black' flags in all educational institutions and work with black ribbons and collect signatures in different colleges.

Cadres of the Maoist youth wing Young Communist League (YCL) allegedly abducted six people including doctors and directors of Nobel Medical College and tortured them brutally for 14 hours at an unidentified location near Kamidanda in Kavre district.

An Indian journalist, Birendra Sah, was killed by Maoist cadres in Bara district last month.
