The Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in Nepal
(OHCHR-Nepal) congratulates the significant achievement of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) in leading an exhumation in Dhanusha into the suspected burial site of five students who were allegedly the victims of enforced disappearance during the armed conflict in Nepal. An exhumation team under the leadership of the NHRC experts and consisting of the Nepal Police, national and international forensic experts, with the support
from OHCHR, have found human remains of four persons. The exhumation has been
temporarily closed on Saturday to be resumed at a later stage to search for the remains of the fifth person allegedly disappeared.The human remains found are extremely useful for experts to conduct a DNA analysis in order to determine the identity of the persons buried and to eventually help clarify these cases
of enforced disappearances. The Supreme Court of Nepal in February 2009, ordered the Nepal Police to register a First Information Report (FIR) and to proceed with investigation into the Dhanusha disappearances but no progress had been achieved so far in the implementation of this decision.
