Damak, April 22: Human Rights Organization of Bhutan (HUROB) issuing a press statement today has expressed a serious concern over the arrest of innocent Bhutanese from camp in connection with gunfire at Shanti Ram Nepal.

We strongly condemn the murder of Nepal and the shooting was a ghastly action, said the HUROB release.
“Whatever may be the motive behind, it is a cowardly act and the law should punish the culprit.”

“It also came to our notice that those who are arrested are innocent just arrested on suspicion of past misunderstanding occurred sometimes ago especially with the said two girls”, said S.B. Subba, the chairperson of HUROB. “Those arrested are being tortured in the police custody.”

The rights body has requested the concern authorities to appropriately deal the case with due respecting individual human rights and pin the right culprit.

The Armed Police Force deployed in the camp yesterday arrested two young ladies and three boys in connection with Nepal’s murder.
