The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has drawn the attention of the government to make arrangement for the final rites of Nanda Prasad Adhikari of Fujel, Gorkha quoting RSS source.
Issuing a press statement Friday, NHRC Spokesperson Mohana Ansari has drawn government’s attention to perform the final rites of late Adhikari based on his religious and cultural beliefs, and traditions.
“The NHRC reminds government to immediately take a step to provide justice to the victim and respect the dead body’s right to last rites as per the religion and culture,” reads the statement.
The NHRC has also accused the government of not paying attention to the implementation though the NHRC repeatedly wrote to the Government, Office of the Prime Minister regarding the demise of Krishna Prasad Adhikari, the son of Nanda Prasad.
Adhikari had breathed his last at Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital three years ago while waging the fast-unto-death demanding justice against his son’s murder.
