  August 11, 2016 By: INSEC

Ganga Maya Adhikari of Gorkha Phujel-7 has again sit for an indefinite hunger strike for the sixth time in a row on August 11. She is on strike demanding the action against the guilt involved in murder of her 16-year-old son Krishna Prasad Adhikari during armed conflict.

She has given a five days ultimatum to bring down the guilt under legal boundary immediately after Puspa Kamal Dahal is elected as a Prime Minister .

She said that she is compelled to sit for indefinite hunger strike to get justice. Speaking with a media person in Bir Hospital, Ganga Maya complained government of showing apathy in bringing guilt under legal boundary even after she lodged FIR. She said” What have I asked? Nothing, but a justice. In return I lost everything. What was my 16-year-old son’s and husband’s fault?. Why they were killed? Why my properties were looted? There is no point for me to live. I will die if I did not get justice. I will not break this strike.

Ganga Maya’s husband Nanda Prasad Adhikari died in Bir hospital in 2014 September 22 while in an indefinite hunger strike for 334 days. His body is still in teaching hospital.

Health professionals said that Ganga Maya’s health is also very weak as she is only having liquid fighting for justice in Bir Hospital.

Her youngest son Krishna Prasad Adhikari was killed in 2004 June 6 after abducting him from Bakullahar Chok in Chitwan by Maoist cadres.
