Information regarding alleged incident | घटेको भनिएको घटनासम्बन्धी जानकारी
- Since the ceasefire, OHCHR has received information about four cases of alleged suicide after abduction. The cases include Shiva Bahadur Khadka, who committed suicide after being abducted by members of the CPN-M on 6 June 2006 in Dolakha District; the suicide of 13-year old Roshan Majhi on 29 May soon after he was released following abduction after being accused of raping a girl in Morang District; and the alleged suicide of Ash Bahadur Rai, whose body was found hanging from a tree some days after he had been abducted in Ilam District in August.
- OHCHR believes that independent and impartial investigations need to be carried out to establish the circumstances which led to each suicide or alleged suicide, including whether treatment while held by the CPN-M was a contributory factor. In the case of Ash Bahadur Rai, the investigations need to establish whether or not the individuals did indeed commit suicide.
