PDF File Size: 116 KB | Download   
OHCHR-Nepal welcomes the Supreme Court’s decision in the case of the enforced
disappearances of five students in Dhanusha District in October 2003. At a 2
February hearing on writ petitions filed in August 2007, the Supreme Court ordered the Nepal Police to register First Information Reports, and proceed with investigations into the disappearances. The Nepal Police has previously refused to register FIRs in the cases, which name senior civil, police and military officials, and include details of a possible grave site identified more than two years ago.
