Questionnaire to be sent to king

Kathmandu, October 11:

The High-level Investigation Commission headed by former Supreme Court justice Krishna Jung Rayamajhi, which is proving the killings and suppression of people during the king’s direct rule, will send its questionnaire to king Gyanendra asking him to clarify his role, if any, in supressing the Jana Andolan II.

According to a member of the commission Ram Prasad Shrestha, the commission will send a questionnaire seeking the king’s clarification. “We have made a consensus to send a questionnaire. And we will send it within a week.”

He said since the king was the chairman of the erstwhile Council of Ministers, the commission decided to record his statement. Shrestha also said that the commission would submit its

final report to government by October 27.
