The conflict victims of Ilam are disappointed after the TRC and CIED did not initiate any further investigation process even after the victims had lodged a complaint at both mechanisms.

The members of the commissions had assured the victims of staring the work immediately after the festival. But, till now no one has contacted the victims.

Conflict victim Toya Nath Acharya of Ilam Barbote complained that they were assured for the investigation however no one has turned up yet. He added that they are disappointed as nothing has happened as per the assurance.
Coordinator Damodar Chapagain of conflict victim’s society said that this situation has created suspicion and fear among the victims of not getting justice.

From Ilam district, 1136 complaints were lodged at TRC and 23 at CIED according to secretary Dikendra Rai of Peace Committee. He said that no official instruction has been received yet regarding the work of TRC and CIED.
