NHRC to remain open in Dashain

Kathmandu, September 28:

The central and regional offices of National Human Rights Commission will remain open for two hours daily during Dashain.

Cases and complaints concerning human rights violations can be registered at the NHRC’s protection division even during the festive season, said the NHRC.

NHRC’s protection division will remain open from 11 am to 1 pm from September 29 to October 7. During the festival, two NHRC officials will be on duty daily on a rotational basis, said an NHRC official.

“We have made such a provision for the benefit of victims and victims’ families,” said the official. Likewise, in case of emergency, the security guards who will be on duty round the clock at the NHRC, will contact the concerned officers, he said. The NHRC has been receiving fewer complaints with the onset of the festive season. According to him, NHRC’s central office has only received six cases since Ghatasthapana.
