OHCHR-Nepal Calls for an End to Violence by All Sides in Chitwan protests
PDF File Size: 118 KB | Download   
OHCHR-Nepal is extremely concerned about the use of live ammunition by police. One person was reportedly killed and several others injured, three critically, after police fired live ammunition in Tandi of Ratnanagar Municipality, Chitwan District, on the night of 5 March. A curfew has since been declared. While police claimed they fired in self-defence after protests turned violent, OHCHR-Nepal is stressing that firearms must not be used in policing demonstrations unless there is a very serious threat to life and only once all other methods have been exhausted.
