On 21 March, 26 individuals linked to the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) (CPNM) and one unidentified individual were brutally killed following violence which broke out when the Madheshi People’s Rights Forum (MPRF) and CPN-M organised simultaneous rallies at the same site in Gaur, Rautahat District. The incidents took place in the context of ongoing unrest in the Terai. This report outlines the preliminary findings of OHCHR’s investigations into the incidents. It considers briefly the political and the local context and details the circumstances surrounding the killings. It looks at the State’s responsibilities regarding law enforcement and official investigations. It
ends with a set of conclusions and recommendations, including with regard to the responsibilities of political parties, demonstration organisers and protestors, to respect the rights of others while exercising their right to freedom of assembly.
