PDF File Size: 105 KB | Download   
OHCHR-Nepal is very concerned that Nepal Police appear to have dispersed, in some instances with excessive use of force, peaceful protests that have taken place in front of the United Nations building in Kathmandu in recent days.
OHCHR is seeking clarification from the Government about the instructions given to police as well as the apparent excessive use of force by police officers against protesters. The Office’s human rights officers will continue to monitor events and interview individuals involved, including those injured by the use of force.
