PDF File Size: 2.06 MB | Download   
Fourteen districts across the country have been mostly affected by the deadly earthquake of 7.6 Richter scale that hit the nation on 25th April at 11.56 AM and on 26th April, 12th May, 2015 and the intermittent aftershocks that followed. The Government of Nepal (GoN) has declared the state of emergency in the earthquake hit districts. About nine thousand people have met death, hundreds of them have been missing and millions have been rendered homeless due to the devastating earthquake. The general citizens’ rights to housing and shelter, right to food and right to property have been severely impacted due the massive earthquake. Each class, community and gender of the society altogether has been affected from nightmare caused due the massive earthquake. Among the affected, marginalized class and community, elderly citizens, pregnant women and women in natal period, children and persons with disabilities, inmates including the weaker section of society had to bear severe shocks. The serious attention of the Commission was, therefore, drawn to the human rights situation of the earthquake survivors, rescue and relief indulging the de-facto situation of the inmates serving their terms. Keeping this mind, the Commission has monitored the situation of all affected districts and district based prisons, hospitals, schools and drawn the attention of the government towards this on the basis of the fact found during the entire course of monitoring. The attention was also drawn towards making the arrangement of cleaning the rubbles and debris left due to the destructed infrastructures.
