Raising serious concern over the OHCHR’s “incapability” of curbing human right abuses even after the peace agreement, human rights activist Sudip Pathak said: “I have fear that even UN’s role and honesty would be affected in the peace process if it comes under the influence of the government and the Maoists.”
