LALITPUR: The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has urged the government to promptly investigate the case of Krishna Prasad Adhikari, who was abducted and killed by the Maoists during the decade-long insurgency.
In a meeting with Home Minister Madhav Prasad Ghimire, Chief Commissioner of NHRC Kedar Nath Upadhyay condemned the government’s decision to not address cases related to the armed conflict and stop the ongoing investigations. Talking about Adhikari’s parents who are on a fast-unto-death, Upadhyay stressed on the urgent need to deliver justice to the victim’s family.
Ghimire told the NHRC official that the government is exploring every possible way to deliver justice to the victims.
Commissioner of NHRC Ram Nagina Singh said that it would be wrong on the part of the government to give compensation to the family of the victim as per NHRC’s recommendation in the Krishna Prasad Adhikari murder case but not take any legal action against the actual culprits involved in the murder.
Nanda Prasad and Ganga Maya Adhikari, who had staged fast-unto-death demanding action against Maoist activists allegedly involved in the murder of their son from the past 15 days, are currently receiving treatment at Bir Hospital after their health deteriorated recently.
Although doctors involved in their treatment said that their health condition is now stable, but the Adhikari couple said they were steadfast in their determination to continue their long-struggle until justice is served
The NHRC had sent the case to the government in April 2009, demanding relief and reparations for the victim’s family. Last week, the Adhikari couple had been taken to Bir Hospital from Baluwatar, where they had been staging the protest. Chairman of the Interim Election Government Khil Raj Regmi had held talks with the victim’s brother Noor Prasad Regmi and expressed commitment to settle the case.
