KATHMANDU: The parliamentary State Affairs Committee (SAC) today directed the government to provide security to chairman of the Rastriya Janamorcha Nepal and lawmaker Chitra Bahadur KC.
The SAC directive came after KC informed the SAC today that he has been receiving death threats over the phone through national and international numbers for five months.
According to KC, an unidentified person calling him from Japan often issues death threats to him for his anti-federal stance. He said the person has threatened to kill him within 10 days.
“I have informed police chiefs and Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai about the threats,” KC said, adding that constant threats have caused panic in his family.
PM Bhattarai, who attended today’s SAC meeting to apprise it of the government’s stance on restructuring of the Nepali Army, informed that investigation is underway to track the person, who has been threatening KC. He promised to provide security to KC.
