Loan shark victims find themselves stranded at Bhrikuti Mandap, unable to return home due to financial constraints.

Despite a government agreement reached at Singha Durbar, where a new commission of inquiry was promised to address illegal mortgage loans, approximately 200 individuals remain marooned.

According to Nirga Nabin, spokesperson for the Kisan Majdur Sangharsha Samiti, over half of the 700 protesting victims have managed to make their way back home by Tuesday. However, those left behind lack the means to cover bus fares and living expenses. They had walked for 23-days from different places to Kathmandu.

While some activists managed to return to their villages with funds from selling paddy, others, particularly from the western region, face challenges due to higher transportation costs.
