Students of Pashupati Multiple Campus in Chabahil organized a protest rally against the placement of Nepal's territory, Lipulek Pass and Kalapani, within India in the political map it issued recently. 

They have demanded corrections in India's new map that has incorporated the Nepal's territory as India's. The rally was led by Kathmandu District Committee of Nepal Student Union, a student wing of Nepali Congress. The protesters chanted slogans like "Our Border Our Country is Dearer than Heart". 

They also warned that encroachment of an inch of Nepal's land would not be tolerable. More than 150 students participated in the rally that started from Mitrapark and converged into a corner meet at Pashupati Campus after going through Chabahil Chowk. 

Addressing the assembly, student leaders Raj Kumar Tamang and Prem Shahi demanded corrections in India's new map and Nepal government's diplomatic initiatives to sort out the problem.
