With regard to the police response to continuing protests in Kathmandu, OHCHR has received
information on incidents of police throwing stones at demonstrators leading to injuries, the use of teargas guns in close proximity to demonstrators and in the vicinity of hospitals and schools, the arrest of demonstrators on questionable legal grounds, the excessive and indiscriminate use of force by some police while taking demonstrators into custody, the failure to facilitate access to medical care for injured demonstrators, as well as threats and injuries to some human rights monitors and members of the press observing the demonstrations. OHCHR has also received information on the arrest of many demonstrators and the beatings of some arrested persons by members of the police.

OHCHR is similarly concerned that, more than four months after the end of the state of
emergency, peaceful public gatherings continue to be prohibited in a number of areas in
Kathmandu and that similar bans have recently been imposed in other districts, including Jhapa and Kailali districts, with the clear intention to prevent announced civil society rallies.
