A clash ensued between police and pro-hindu, pro-monarch supporters after the latter put up a half-figure statue of late King Birendra at Birendra Chowk in Nepalgunj on Thursday.

The area became tense after the police resorted to lathi-charge following the incident.

Pro-hindu, pro-monarch supporters chanted slogans at the chok.

Protesters during the 2006 people's movement had brought down the full figure statue of the late king.
