OHCHR-Nepal Calls for an End to Violence by All Sides in Chitwan protests
Abstract:
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. #ArmedPolice #ForceUse #Investigation

OHCHR-Nepal Calls for an End to Violence by All Sides in Chitwan protestP
Abstract:
Following the deaths of two protesters and a memberof 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 force only if necessary, 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 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.
