OHCHR-Nepal calls for an end to violence by all sides in Chitwan protests
PDF File Size: 118 KB | Download   
Following the deaths of two protesters and a member of the Armed Police Force (APF)in Chitwan in the past two days, OHCHR-Nepal is urging all sides to exercise restraint and to resolve their differences in dialogue. Protesting groups should use peaceful means only, while the Nepal Police and APF should use minimum force, and if force is necessary, ensure that it is proportional to the threat posed. 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 VDC, Chitwan, on the night of 5 March. A curfew has since been declared in Ratnanagar Municipality. 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. The Office is also extremely concerned at reports that two APF members were attacked by protesters with khukuris(large knives) during a demonstration on 6 March. One constable has since died and the other is seriously injured.
