Nepal blocks Indian TV channels over 'blockade'
[Dhaka Tribune] Cable TV operators in Nepal have blocked 42 Indian channels in protest against what they call an unofficial "blockade of goods" into the country.

Scores of trucks carrying supplies are stranded on the India-Nepal border, amid protests in south Nepal over the country's newly adopted constitution.

India has been critical of Nepal's new constitution.

But it denies enforcing a blockade, saying goods are being held up due to security reasons.

The move comes after a former Maoist splinter party started a campaign against Indian movies and TV channels in Nepal.

The president of the Nepal Cable Television Association told BBC Nepali the "black-out will be indefinite".
