Kathmandu, Mar 4 (UNI) National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) in Nepal has asked the Office of the Prime Minister and the Council of Ministers to immediately disclose the status of 775 people who have been made to disappear by the State, media reports today said.

NHRC urged the government to publicise the names of all those disappeared by the state and respect human rights norms, local media quoted the statement of the NHRC as saying.

The family members of the disappeared people have been staging dharna outside the NHRC office for the last few days demanding the whereabouts of their relatives.

More than 13,000 people have been killed and thousands injured and affected in the Himalyan kingdom since the Maoists insurgency began in 1996.

The government and the Maoists have been criticised for the violations of human rights by national and international human rights organisations.
