OHCHR-Nepal Calls For An End to Violence By All Sides In Terai Protests
PDF File Size: 107 KB | Download   
In the midst of reports of growing violence in many parts of the Terai, OHCHR-Nepal is urging the Nepal Police and APF to exercise restraint in response to protests. The Office also calls on protesting groups to use only peaceful means. Respect for human rights is even more essential during these times of tension. In recent days OHCHR has monitored the actions of protesters and the response of the police to maintain order. In some instances, the police showed restraint despite provocation by protesters, who pelted stones at police who were protecting Government property or removing roadblocks. Police officers were also injured. In other instances however, OHCHR found that police used excessive force, sometimes against peaceful protesters, resulting in at least one death and numerous injuries to protesters. The Office continues to investigate other reported killings. OHCHR-Nepal reiterates its call for thorough and independent investigations into all killings which have occurred as well as into allegations of serious beatings. The Office has observed that dozens of people have been arrested and has received reports that some of those who were injured have been taken from hospital into police custody.It is essential that authorities observe international standards relating to the human rights of detainees.
