Baidya’s students pick up Raju Basnet promotion row


KATHMANDU: All Nepal National Independent Students Union- Revolutionary (ANNISU-R) close to the UCPN (Maoist) has demanded that the promotion of Raju Basnet, the then Battalion Chief of Nepal Army (NA), who is accused of being directly involved in the Shivapuri massacre during the people’s war be stopped.

A delegation of the Union called on Prime Minister Dr Baburam Bhattarai at the latter’s office, Singha Durbar Tuesday and handed over a memorandum to that end.

A report of the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) states that of the detainees at NA Bhairavnath Battalion, 49 were killed en masse at the Shivapuri Forest in 2060 BS and Basnet was the Battalion chief.

Talking to RSS after the meeting with the Prime Minister, Union President Himal Sharma said the Shivapuri incident was a sheer violation of  human rights and promoting any security officers accused of human rights violation during the war would encourage violation of human rights. RSS
