Share post:


Kathmandu: About 1,000 ex-army and police personnel who were forced to abandon their jobs during the decade long armed conflict have intensified their protests in the Nepali capital demanding their reinstatement.

Five of the conflict affected security personnel have been on fast-on-to death for the past three days. Hundreds of other ex-security personnel have been staging sit-in in front of the Kathmandu District Administration Office for the last ten days.

“Our major demands include reinstatement of some 8,000 ex-army men, armed police force personnel and ex-policemen and providing benefits and compensation to the conflict hit security personnel who were forced to leave their jobs due to threat and torture by the Maoist rebels,” said Surya Bahadur Ghimire, coordinator of Conflict Affected Army-Police National Struggle Committee (CAAPNSC).
