Kathmandu, Nov 19 (UNI) Nepal today witnessed demonstrations in various parts of the valley against the killing of two youths by the cadres of the Maoists' youth wing Young Communist League (YCL).

''Nirmal Pant and Pushkar Dangol, residents of Syuchatar VDC-2 of Kathmandu were reportedly abducted by more than 300 YCL cadres during visit to Gorkha on October 19 and murdered,'' Kantipur reported here.

Their bodies were recovered from the banks of Dariyal stream at Jarebagaicha in Pida VDC-3 in Dhading yesterday after search was carried out by the human rights activists, police officers and relatives, the paper said.

The agitators vandalised and burnt the materials of the office of the YCL at Kalanki this morning.

The demonstrators chanted slogans against the YCL and demanded resignation from the Home Minister for failing to provide peace and security in the country.

They vandalised more than dozens of vehicles and obstructed the transportation at various parts of the capital including Kalanki, Chabahil, Nayabazar, Lainchour including others, the reports said.

YCL has been accused of continuing the violent activities despite the Maoists leading government by human rights groups and political parties. However, Maoists refuse the allegation.
