Sep 26, 2016-
The hearing on the 2004 murder of Krishna Prasad Adhikari by the then Maoist rebels began in Chitwan District Court on Sunday.
District Attorney Maniram Neupane and Assistant District Attorney Udaya Chandra Adhikari completed their hearing on behalf of the plaintiff while six advocates carried out hearing from the side of the petitioner on Sunday. The hearing was presided over by Judge Tek Narayan Kunwar. “The hearing from plaintiff and petitioner completed today. The hearing of the defendants will take place tomorrow,” Krishna Prasad Baral, the information officer at the court, said on Sunday.
Eleven advocates on behalf of defendants have registered their names for the hearing.
Gehendra Raj Pant, the court registrar, recorded the statement regarding the case from the victim’s mother Ganga Maya Adhikari from the hospital bed in Kathmandu on October 18. Ganga Maya is under medical observation after she ended her fast-unto-death protest demanding justice for her son.
Her husband, Nanda Prasad, died during hunger strike two years ago.
The Adhikaris have filed a murder case against 13 former Maoist rebels.
