Kathmandu, Apr 20 (UNI) Seven major political parties of Nepal today said demonstrations against King Gyanendra will continue here tomorrow.

The parties decided to continue the demonstrations after the security forces shot dead three people and injured over 100 with a dozen seriously injured in the incident.

The anti-King demonstrations had intensified in the recent days as thousands of people had come down to the streets demanding the end of the autocratic rule.

Heavy pressure have mounted on the King to restore democracy in the Himalayan Kingdom and initiate dialogue with the major political parties.

Earlier in the day, special envoy of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Dr Karan Singh, met King Gyanendra at Narayanhity royal palace and handed over Dr Singh's letter to him.
