The family of Naresh Thapa, who was killed in police firing in Birtamod, Jhapa, on Friday during a protest rally organised to demand investigation into the alleged murder of 11-year-old Laxman Shiwakoti, received his body on Sunday after the local administration made a commitment to recommend the government to provide appropriate compensation for their loss.
As per the agreement reached during the Saturday’s all-party meeting, the District Administration Office shall recommend the Home Ministry to provide Rs 1 million compensation to Thapa’s family.
Life gradually returned to normalcy in Birtamod after the agreement. However, the local administration had not lifted the curfew in the area till Sunday evening. (PR)
