Locals demonstrate against investigation committee in Darchula cable incident


Sudurpashchim, Darchula, Byas, Ward 2

CPN-Maoist cadres led by Netra Bikram Chand and locals have demonstrated against the investigation committee formed to find the truth in the Darchula cable crossing incident involving the death of local  Jaya Singh Dhami. Locals resorted to protest and chanted slogans against the investigation committee saying that it was accompanied by Indian SSB who have been blamed for the death of Jaya Singh Dhami. They are also opposing the decision of the investigation committee to inspect the site of the incident from the Indian side. Protestors shoed the national flag and the flag of Netra Bikram Chand's party and demanded to come from Nepal to investigate.

Subash Malla, district secretary of the Chand-led CPN-Maoist party doubted the investigation committee would come up with a truthful report about the incident as the accused party SSB was also involved in the investigation.
