Kathmandu/September 28 Home Minister Bamdev Gautam, in a reply to Social Justice and Human Rights Committee of the Parliament-Legislature, has said that no action could be taken against the accused of the killing of Krishna Prasad due to lack of sufficient incriminating evidence.

He further said that the other accused had to be released for the same reason. “The government repeatedly tried break their hunger strike but the victim family kept on topping new demands over the old ones and in the last communication, the family asked for two billion rupees”, Gautam informed adding the government had told the family that the government could not afford demanded amount of money.
