NHRC asks govt to save lives of protestors


KATHMANDU: The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has urged the government to save the lives of those who are on a relay hunger strike and address their demands through talks.

A team of six persons has been on a relay hunger strike in Kathmandu for the past six days demanding that the government should intensify works to prevent and control COVID-19. Issuing a statement on Wednesday, NHRC’s Spokesperson Bed Prasad Bhattarai also urged the protesting group of people to follow COVID-19 standards set by the government. The protesting people had filed an application with the NHRC demanding that the health rights of the people should be ensured amid coronavirus pandemic. The NHRC visited the venue of protest and took stock of the people on hunger strike there. Two of the protestors–Sujan Gurung and Subani Sijapati–have been taken to Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital for treatment and health of others, who continue their protest, is said to be normal.
