NHRC slams govt for withdrawing cases


KATHMANDU:
Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), Kedar Nath Upadhyay has said government committed a mistake by withdrawing cases of human rights violations instead of taking further action.
Speaking at the concluding function of the third national human rights conference in the capital on Monday, Chairman Upadhyay said condoning guilty people by the state would set wrong precedent.
“What is the significance of the peace agreement if the government continues condoning those involved in serious cases of the human rights violation,” he wondered. He termed country’s human rights condition ‘very sick’.
On the occasion, INSEC Chairman Subodh Raj Pyakurel said none could advocate nepotism while hearing on the human rights case.
Recently, The Council of Ministers has withdrawn 349 criminal cases that include serious offences like homicide, rape, robbery, drug smuggling, wood smuggling including serious human rights violations cases committed during war era.
