Imagine you’re walking in the streets, minding your own business. Suddenly, a bunch of police offers stop you, hand-cuff you and proceed to carry you inside the police van that has “prahari mero sathi” written on the side. The scenario isn’t all that hypothetical as a comical instance from a year back showed us.



So, what do you do now? Well, you’re a Nepali citizen. And just by the virtue of being a Nepali citizen, you have been guaranteed a set of rights by the constitution which is above you, me and the police who have just arrested you.


So, in case you find yourself caught on the wrong side of the law, it’s worth remembering the rights that you have.  










And these are the very basic rights that you should remember in case you ever get arrested or detained by the police. Though, we hope it never comes to that. Meanwhile, did we miss any significant rights? Let us know in the comments section below.
