PM Oli urged to form high-level commission

Kathmandu

Aug 25, 2018-

Nepal Communist Party Co-chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal has urged Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli to form a high-level commission to investigate the rape and murder of 13-year-old Nirmala Panta and the escalation of protests in the wake of the incident.

Dahal phoned PM Oli on Friday and urged him to form a probe panel before the situation got out of control. Mahendranagar residents are in protest ever since Nirmala’s body was found on July 27. On Friday, police opened fire at a rally, killing a child. Lawmakers from Kailali and Kancharpur districts had reached Dahal’s Khumaltar residence on Friday afternoon and urged the latter to urgently talk to the prime minister about the matter. (PR)
