Human rights officers from OHCHR-Nepal followed up the incident in support of
investigators from the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC). The attack is the latest in a series of assaults against the media in Nepal. In Janakpur on 20 October, several persons reportedly raided the office of a local newspaper, assaulted staff, and damaged and stole equipment. The incident followed publication of a news article suggesting that the Young Communist League (YCL) was providing protection for prostitution. In another incident, a journalist from a daily newspaper in Nepalgunj informed OHCHR that he had been verbally abused and threatened on 21 October by a local government official of Banke district, following publication of an article that alleged financial irregularities linked to a local construction project.
