Victims of Tikapur incident press govt to release report
Apr 8, 2018-
The Tikapur Incident Victim Families Association has demanded an immediate release of the 26 people, including two minors, arrested on the charge of involvement in a political incident.
Speaking at a press conference on Friday, Coordinator of the association Dhan Kumar Chaudhary urged the government to make public the report of the incident. “Everyone talks about the incident day. Curfew was imposed a day after the incident when Tharu homes were burnt, looted under the cover of police protection while Tharu girls and women were mistreated. But no human rights activist raise the issue,” he said.
Kanchanpur Chair of Nepal Federation of Indigenous Nationalities Premwati Rana said it is unfortunate that the government has not made its official position public about the Tikapur incident.
The association has also demanded that HoR member Resham Lal Chaudhary should be given his victory certificate, the case filed against the accused in the incident be withdrawn and those who suffered losses in the vandalism a day after the incident be compensated.
