Shivpuri probe getting delayed: NHRC

Lalitpur, January 19:

The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has said the task for further investigation into the site inside the Shivapuri National Park, which is under the scanner on the suspicion that security personnel of Bhairabnath Battalion of Nepal Army had buried corpses of people whom they had killed, has not progressed because of delay in the visit of foreign forensic anthropologists to Nepal.

Member of NHRC Gouri Pradhan said NHRC undertook correspondence with UNCHR in Nepal in this regard and subjects of suspicion found in the place during initial investigation are under examination. He said that the place is under the security of police at present.
