Kathmandu, Apr 16 (UNI) Women members of the families of Royal Nepalese Army (RNA) personnel and police forces have now come to the forefront in leading the anti-king demonstrations in various parts of the country.

The family members of the security forces in a bid to support the movement to restore democracy in Nepal, yesterday took part in a massive demonstration organised in Nepalgunj in mid western Nepal, the Kathmandu Post said here today.

Most of the participants of the demonstrations were women holding banners and urging security forces not to use force against the peaceful demonstrators who are demanding an end to the king's autocratic rule.

Huge rallies were taken out across the country in the last few days since the seven parties launched fresh rounds of anti-king demonstrations 11 days ago.

Family members of the army and police personnel took out rallies in the capital as well as Kanchanpur, Chitwan, and other parts of the country.

Various professional organisations including doctors, journalists, lawyers, teachers, government employees and the business community have also expressed solidarity with the movement.

The leaders of the seven parties have said the movement will continue until democracy is restored.
