OHCHR Releases Report on Gaur Killings

OHCHR-Nepal has released on 20 April the findings of its investigation into the killings in Gaur and surrounding VDCs on 21 March.

The report rapped government, Madheshi Janaadhikar Forum and the Maoists for their parts that led to the killings of 27 indivuduals, most of them Maoists.

The report said the incident on the Rice Mill field was sparked when about a dozen young men destroyed the CPN-M stage adding that the killings could have been prevented had the government been well prepared for security, MJF resorted to peaceful means of countering any disturbance and the Maoists avoided the clash by not coinciding its programme with MJF programme.
