Ten students were arrested on friday the 27th outside the Nepal Oil Corporation. They include Sachit Nagela, Bishu Thapa and Arpit Poudel. 

They had set January 28, 10 am as deadline to immolate themselves, along with the national flag.

The protest was over the fuel price hike that the government of Nepal tends to increase every other year or so.
Until now there was no significant protest like this where the students threatened to burn themselves over a cause. It will create a great pressure over the government of Nepal whether to increase the price or not.

It is good to see that the students of different political groups protesting against the common problem of the people instead of fighting for their parent political group. Looks like the new generation is not going to be the same as the ones that are ruling the country now and will definitely bring some peace and stability to the country after all.

What do you think? Is it good to protest against fuel hike price even if it means that you have to burn yourself to death? Please feel free to comment.
