Kathmandu, September 10
Attorney General Agni Kharel has blamed Nur Prasad Adhikari, the elder brother of Krishna Prasad Adhikari, for the Chitwan District Court’s decision to acquit 12 suspects of Krishna Prasad’s murder case.
The Court on Sunday had decided to acquit 12 of 13 suspects.
Kharel says Nur Prasad did not go to the Court to record his statements against the suspects; therefore, the court later concluded that there was not enough evidence to prove their involvement in the murder.
Nur Prasad, the elder son of Ganga Maya Adhikari, who has staged repeated rounds of fast-unto-death demanding legal action against the perpetrators, was the one who filed a complaint against the suspects. However, he did not go to the court, rendering the case weak, according to Kharel.
“If the person, who filed a complaint to start the case, does not go to the court, the case becomes weak,” Kharel says, “The government fought the case for his family. But, he did not cooperate with us.”
