Jun 16, 2016-As the deadline draws near, the number of complaints on war-era cases has increased, with the Local Peace Committee registering over a dozen cases every day. The committee has registered more than 700 cases over the past two months. 

The deadline for complaint registration with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) ends on Thursday. However, the Commission of Investigation on Enforced Disappeared Persons (CIEDP) has extended the deadline by one month.   

On Tuesday, Central Vice-chairman of Nepal Bar Association and advocate Salikram Sapkota registered complaints against the then Royal Nepal Army, for torturing him in detention. Sapkota was abducted and forcefully disappeared for four months. The TRC has received 609 such complaints, while the CIEDP has registered 114 complaints so far.
