The government has made a commitment that it would disclose the facts relating to the death of Mohammad Hakim Saha from Bhokraha Narsingh Rural Municipality of Sunsari in the detention centre of District Police Office, Sunsari.

Receiving a memorandum submitted by the representatives of the Muslim community at the Home Ministry on Sunday, Home Minister Bal Krishna Khand said saving citizen's life is the government's prime duty. "Government is committed to bringing forth facts on the death of Mohammad Hakim at detention centre by keeping intact social harmony," he reiterated.

All citizens are free to adopt any culture and religion of their choice, he said, adding that the government is committed to saving people's lives.
