Chure Samaj warns of agitation

Kathmandu, July 9:

Leaders of the Chure Bhavar Ekata Samaj today warned that they would launch fresh peaceful agitation in the Chure Bhavar region from August 17 if the government did not fulfill their two preconditions put forth to the government talks team.

The agitating Chure Bhavar Ekata Samaj had, on June 17, held talks with the government talks team, led by Minister for Peace and Reconstruction Ramchandra Poudel.

The Samaj had asked the government to drop murder charges against nine people who were detained following a clash in Dhanusa’s Yagyabhumi village, where one Madhesi man was killed a few months ago.

The government had decided to provide Rs. one million as compensation to the bereaved family of the deceased man and arrested nine people of hill origin on charges of his murder.

The other precondition of the Samaj before the government was to ensure security of the people of hill origin and maintain law and order in the Chure Bhavar region.
