Sharma’s widow laments delay in probe into killing

Surkhet, May 9:

Kamala Sharma, who made it to the constituent assembly from Constituency No 1 in Surkhet, today accused the authorities of trying to supress the motive behind the her husband’s murder.

Rishi Prasad Sharma, who was UML’s candidate from the constituency, was killed two days before the April 28 polls. Kamala won the polls on UML’s ticket when the party awarded her with the ticket after the killing of her husband.

In a press statement released today, Kamala said ‘all honest people know the killing was pre-planned and they also know the reasons and motives behind the killing’.

She lamented the delay in taking action against the persons involved in the crime “even though weeks have passed since the FIR was filed pointing out the persons involved in the killing”. The statement condemned the “attack on houses of UML cadres Yagya Prasad Dhakal,

Lal Bahadur Thapa and Dharma Buda in Chhinchu by Nepali Congress cadres” and demanded action against the guilty.

Kamala said every attempt would be made to get Sharma’s killers arrested and punished.
