CPN-UML condemns party leader's murder in Sarlahi

KATHMANDU: The ruling CPN-UML has condemned the murder of its Sarlahi district leader Ram Naresh Raya Yadav, who it said was active in the party's campaign to eliminate false propaganda against the national unity and the recently promulgated constitution.

Issuing a statement, Ishwar Pokharel, the general secretary of CPN-UML, appealed to the government to leave no stone unturned to arrest and book the ones behind the heinous murder.

The party further asked the government to do the needful to provide security to the general public taking into consideration the worsening situation of law and order in the Tarai-Madhes region of late.

Yadav, who was a member of the CPN-UML's Sarlahi district committee, was found murdered in a sugarcane field earlier this morning. An unidentified group, which the ruling party dubbed criminal, hacked Yadav to death at Hempur VDC of Sarlahi district  using sharp weapons.

The party remembered Yadav as a popular social worker and a party's strong pillar in the Tarai-Madhes region, and expressed condolence to the bereaved family.
