There are alarming and confirmed reports of children participating in violent protests and bandhs. In Nepalgunj, for example, on 3 and 4 February, a considerable number of children aged between seven and fifteen years old, some of whom carried sticks, were observed supporting the enforcement of the bandh. In Duhabi, Sunsari District, a number of children between the ages of eight and twelve years were seen manning a roadblock armed with sticks. The crowd that attacked a group of Nepali Congress members in Darchula District on 5 February also reportedly included at least a hundred children and students, some in school uniforms. Children have been seen at several other locations during the Terai-wide bandh including the violent protests in Nepalgunj on 17 February, during which one person was shot dead and several injured by bullets, including a fourteen year-old boy.
UNICEF and OHCHR urge all parties to respect the provisions of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, to which Nepal is a signatory, and to take all necessary measures to avoid exposing all boys and girls under the age of eighteen to risk of harm.
