High-level commission to probe atrocities in Nepal formed
Kathmandu, May 5 (UNI) A high-level judicial commission to probe the alleged atrocities by the Royal regime officials during the pro-democracy movement in Nepal, was formed today.
The five-member commission was constituted, after a Cabinet meeting today under the chairmanship of former judge of the country's Supreme Court Krishna Jung Rayamajhi.
The parliament has also adopted a resolution to form a commission and recommend action against the violators of human rights and suppression of the peaceful demonstrations.
There was widespread pressure on the government to constitute such a panel as 19 people including an Indian national were killed, over 6,000 injured, 200 of them seriously and there were allegations of serious human rights violations, and torture to the supporters of the movement led by the Seven Party Alliance.
Various international human rights organisations and the international community had unequivocally condemned the atrocities by the Royal regime and had urged for the restoration of democracy in the Himalayan kingdom.
