In a statement sent here today, the Comittee has said, ''The Maoists must stop the Young Communist League terror and return the captured properties and fulfil previously made commitments.'' The US government has not removed the Maoists, which has formed the government in Nepal, from terrorist list.

Maoists was declared terrorist and the army mobilised in 2002 after the Communist rebels attacked police posts and army barrack in various parts of the Himalayan nation.

The former rebels joined the mainstream political parties after signing a peace deal to end the 240-year-old monarchy from the Himalayan nation.

The Maoists emerged as the largest political party with over 220 seats in the 601 Constituent Assembly election held in May and formed a Communist dominated government in Nepal.
