Kathmandu, December 28

A group of bikers providing ride-sharing service to the public on behalf of Pathao has vandalised the company office in Baneshwar of Kathmandu on Monday.

For the past week, they have been agitating, demanding that the company reduce the commission rate and fines they need to pay for defying the company rules and insure the motorbike and riders.

Last Monday, the riders had submitted a memorandum to the company mentioning their demands. Responding to that, the company has already agreed to insure riders and service-recipients. However, it is not ready to slash the commission, a major demand of the protesters.

While some leaders of the agitators were holding talks with the management, some other riders broke the windows of the office on Monday, according to DSP Daksha Bahadur Basnet.

Police have detained 26 persons in connection with the case.
