Press Release: Condemnation of custodial death of Mr. Ram Manohar Yadav
The Association of Nepali Teraian in America (ANTA) would like to join the fellow Madheshi organizations in denouncing the custodial death ofMr. Ram Manohar Yadav. Mr Ram Manohar Yadav was picked up by the Nepal Police from a mass meeting for the public.
While the facts and circumstances around the arrest of Mr. Yadav could be unclear, his death under the police custody for lack of sufficient and timely medical attention is highly deplorable and is a reflection of authorities’ callousness towards a human life in Terai. ANTA would like to urge the powers that be in Nepal to take ownership of the loss of a precious life, conduct an independent and impartial enquiry into Mr Yadav’s death and a total justice be served to his family.
