Kathmandu, May 13: The new nepal government has appointed acting chiefs in the police and intelligence services, after suspending the officers heading the organisations.

Mr Om Bikram rana, Mr Basudev Oli and Mr Dhan Singh Karki have been appointed as acting chiefs of Nepal Police, Armed Police force and National Investigation Department respectively.

Government had suspended nine security officials, who were said to be involved in suppressing people's movement last month.

At least 21 people, including an indian, were killed and over 6,000 injured -- 2,000 reportedly very critical -- during the movement.

King gyanendra was forced to reinstate parliament and return the executive powers to the elected representatives.

The royal government formed under the chairmanship of king gyanendra was condemned worldwide for the violation of human rights and suppression of peaceful demostration against his autocratic rule.

It is the first time in the history of nepal that such a number of senior officials of nepal police were suspended on the charge of suppressing pro-democracy supporters.

There was pressure on the government to suspend and take action against those who were involved in the anti-democracy movement.
