Police arrested 250 college and university professors who defied a curfew order and took to the streets in a west Nepal town on Wednesday to protest against King Gyanendra's rule, an official said.

The professors were demonstrating at Pokhara, about 200 kilometers west of Kathmandu, violating a day curfew imposed to prevent demonstrations, police said on the telephone.
