Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) evicted shops and restaurants operating at the iconic Dharahara site on Saturday.

KMC had issued a statement on Friday asking the shops and restaurants inside the now-collapsed Dharahara be removed inside 24 hours. It had said that the agreement signed with a private company Sidewalker’s, entrusted with managing Dharahara, had automatically ended after Dharahara collapsed in the 2015 April 25 Great Quake.

The company had signed a lease contract

KMC personnel removed all the shops and restaurants from the premises on Saturday after they refused to leave.
