I am deeply concerned at incidents in several towns and other locations in the Tarai
which have resulted in one death and many serious injuries. In a number of places across the eastern, central and mid-western Tarai, OHCHR and UNMIN teams were present to seek to contribute to the avoidance of violence, and witnessed excessive use of force by personnel of the Nepal Police and Armed Police Force, including beating of protesters after they had been brought under control. Police used tear gas, rubber bullets and, in several cases, live ammunition; the actions of the police are being investigated by OHCHR. UN teams also witnessed heavy stone-throwing at police, causing injuries, as well as attempts to close government offices, vandalize property and coerce others into observing the bandh, and saw among protesters a few persons carrying firearms or petrol bombs. Many children were in the crowd and engaged in stone-throwing or were otherwise caught up in the violence. I have appealed to the Home Minister to take all possible measures to avoid excessive use of force, and to leaders of the United Democratic Madhesi Front to call on protesters to remain peaceful and to avoid the involvement of children in demonstrations.
