NHRC urges govt to save Ganga Maya’s life

Kathmandu, July 2

The National Human Rights Commission has urged the government to save the life of Ganga Maya, who is currently on a fast-unto-death, demanding investigation and action against culprits involved in the murder of her son Krishna Prasad Adhikari at Bir Hospital.

Issuing a press release today, Officiating Secretary at NHRC, Yagya Prasad Adhikari, drew the government’s attention to Ganga Maya’s  rapidly deteriorating health as a result of frequent fasts-unto-death demanding justice.

NHRC is seriously concerned about her feeble health condition, he added. A team member of NHRC Sudip Pathak observed Ganga Maya’s health condition.

Officiating Secretary of NHRC Yagya informed that Ganga Maya was restricted to visitors due to high chances of infection, said the hospital administration.

Investigating  the incident earlier on April 5, 2009, NHRC had recommend that government file a criminal case against the culprit and provide compensation to the victim’s family.

The government has again been urged by NHRC to initiate action against those involved in the murder of Ganga Maya’s son, as per the Supreme Court order, but the request of the NHRC hasn’t been taken as serious by the government.
