Writ petition filed by Maoist insurgency victims

2022 Jun 09, 15:39, Rupandehi

The Tulasipur bench of the High Court, Butwal, has issued a mandamus over a writ petition filed demanding the whereabouts of those disappeared during the Maoist insurgency.

A bench comprising judges Nityananda Pandey and Mamata Khanal issued the order responding to the writ petition filed in the court by Budhu Pasi and Dhan Kumari Tharu on behalf of the families of disappeared people. Advocates Shiva Prasad Gaudel and Indira Acharya pleaded in favour of the petition.

It is said, their repeated calls to the concerned authorities for finding the whereabouts of the disappeared had been largely ignored.

Their earlier effort to file a police case on the International Day of the Disappeared could not be fruitful due to reluctance of the district police office to register the report. Lautu Pasi alias Ram Palat of the then Bodawar VDC-3 (now Rohini Rural Municipality-5) in Rupandehi was arrested in 2059 BS and subsequently disappeared, according to the petition.

Saying he met his elder brother on June 7, 2004 for the last time, Budhu demanded the disclosure of whereabouts of his elder brother.

Similarly, it has been one and half decades since the disappearance of spouse of Dhan Kumari Tharu of Siyari rural municipality-6 in Rupandehi.

Tharu shared that writ petition was filed at the Court, seeking the disclosure of the situation of Kamal, who disappeared on August 27, 2005.
