Nuwakot, September 5:

The National Human Rights Commission has started a probe into the firing at a students’ rally at Adarsha Multiple Campus in Nuwakot that occurred a week ago. Two NHRC officials, Shyam Babu Kafle and Regan Maharjan, who were in Nuwakot yesterday have finished the inspection of the incident site and returned to the capital. The police had opened fire at a rally organised by the seven agitating student unions to protest against the hike in price of petroleum products on August 29. Two students were hit by bullets while more than a dozen were injured during the police lathi-charge. Six policemen were also hurt.
