Nepal cracks down on nude discos

Hundreds protest against Nepal crackdown on 'nude' discos

Hundreds of disco workers protested in Kathmandu on Monday against a Government crackdown on "nude dancing" in its bid to improve the deteriorating law and order.

Police have raided scores of discos, nightclubs and dance bars in the past two weeks and detained 1,500 people saying many were running bars where "nude dances" were performed, not allowed by law in the Hindu majority society.

There are hundreds of such night spots in the Kathmandu valley, although the country has no specific law to regulate them.
