Nepalese police used tear gas and water cannons to stop a religious procession in Patan, which was held in violation of a quarantine. The CNA has written about this.
The traditional Chariot Festival was held in Patan on September 3, which was attended by hundreds of Hindus and Buddhists despite the quarantine imposed in the country.
The police said that at least four of their employees were injured in the clashes. Festival participants were also injured, but the exact number is not known.
People come to Patan every year to see a 15-meter wooden chariot carrying the rain god McKindra Nath.
The event was to be held at the end of April but was postponed due to the national quarantine imposed in Nepal on March 24.
