Chitwan District Court hands-over 10-day Judicial custody to 2004 murder accused Adhikari


CHITWAN: The District Court, Chitwan has extended the police remand of UCPN-Maoist cadre Ram Prasad Adhikari, by 10 days for investigation in connection to the murder of 18-year-old Krishna Prasad Adhikari of Phujel, Gorkha during the period of armed insurgency.

Ram Prasad was arrested from Bagbazar, Kathmandu Friday and was taken to Chitwan, where the murder actually took place in 2004, according to police. District Court Judge Binod Mohan Acharya extended Adhikari´s remand by 10 days, saying more investigation needed to be carried out with regard to the case.

Chitwan District Police pleaded that they need time to investigate the murder case and therefore, require to keep Krishna Prasad in custody. The 10 days of police custody will be counted from Friday, according to court officials.

The police are further looking for 10 other accused who were mostly from Phujel VDC of Gorkha district, where the deceased (Krishna Prasad) hailed from, said SP Pradhumna Karki, chief of Chitwan District Police.

Parents of the deceased, Nanda Prasad and Ganga Maya, broke their fast unto death at around 1 a.m. Sunday following the arrest of the murder accused on Friday. They are still at the ICU ward of Bir Hospital, Kathmandu. The UCPN-Maoist organized Kathmandu, Chitwan and Gorkha districts bandh on Saturday protesting the arrest. However the party was forced to withdraw the strike in-between following the protest from general people. The UCPN-Maoist has been stressing on forming a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to look into the conflict-era cases of rights violation in bulk, while human rights activists have been emphasizing that such cases need to be resolved as and when they appear.

The formation of such a Commission hit the snag after it was revealed that the Commission would offer “blanket amnesty” to potential perpetrators without putting them into legal trial.

Over 13 thousand people were killed and many other missing during the period of armed insurgency from 1996 to 2006. The party joined the political mainstream following the success of April uprising of 2006.
