Nepal must probe killings during protests: rights body

  • Nepali authorities should immediately investigate and bring to justice those responsible for killings and other violations during ongoing protests over the constitutional debate, Human Rights Watch said on Friday. At least 45 people were killed during the protests in August and September. The violence included the use of arbitrary and disproportionate force, and extrajudicial killings by police against protesters, killing of children, and murders of police officers. (Source: IANS)
