NHRC concerned

KATHMANDU: The National Human Rights Commission on Wednesday said its attention was drawn towards the government’s failure to ascertain the whereabouts of those disappeared during the decade-long conflict.

The NHRC said it was concerned as the whereabouts of the disappeared remained unknown even 10 years after the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Accord.

It also called on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the Commission of Investigation on Enforced Disappeared Persons to investigate cases of disappearance without any bias, recommend necessary action against the perpetrators and ensure proper reparation to the victims’ families.
