KATHMANDU: Leader of the ruling Nepal Communist Party (NCP) and former Minister for Home Affairs Janardan Sharma has remarked that the government banned the Biplav outfit unnecessarily.

Speaking at the meeting of State Affairs Committee on Monday, he accused the government of riling the outfit further by banning it.

He suggested the government to bring all the dissenting parties to a negotiation table.

Sharma said that government’s claim that Sarlahi in-charge of the Bilpav-led outfit Kumar Poudel was killed in a gunfight with police was unconvincing.

He questioned Home Minister Ram Bahadur Thapa on how the person killed in ‘encounter’ was left with a fractured hand.

Earlier, Home Minister Thapa told the meeting that Poudel was killed in an encounter, adding that the government, however, was open for an investigation.
