The situation of Morang District Prison Bhadauyata is growing tense after the decision was taken to bring Abhishek Giri, a gangster from Biratnagar, to Morang Jail. Giri is serving a prison sentence in a kidnapping and hostage case. He was transferred from Morang Jail to Dilli Bazaar Jail in Kathmandu four years ago. After the change of government and the formation of the Congress government, the party leaders had been pressuring Giri to bring Morang.
Giri was brought to Morang Jail from Dilli Bazaar Jail on November 2. However, the inmates protested inside the prison and the relatives of the inmates protested outside the prison. Giri was sent to Saptari District Jail after being obstructed by the protest. Even after being sent to Saptari, Giri has been transferred to Biratnagar again.
Leaders and cadres of the pro-Giri Congress have been protesting in front of Morang Prison since Sunday demanding easy entry of Giri since November 21. The demonstration was led by Sachin Pokharel, joint secretary of NC Biratnagar Metropolitan Committee.
