KATHMANDU: Nepali Congress, the main opposition party, has demanded the formation of a parliamentary investigation committee to probe into the Chaurjahari incident.

Speaking at the House of Representatives (HoR) today, Chief Whip of the party, Bal Krishna Khand demanded a parliamentary probe into the incident.

He said that a probe committee should be formed involving lawmakers of the Federal Parliament representing both Jajarkot and Western Rukum districts.

Meanwhile, NC lawmaker Amresh Kumar Singh demanded formation of a parliamentary probe committee, which he claimed can unveil the facts.

The opposition party’s demand comes at a time when the Home Ministry has already formed a five-member probe committee under a joint secretary.

Home Minister Ram Bahadur Thapa had told the National Assembly today that the Chaurjahari incident will be investigated thoroughly and people found guilty will be punished.

Three people have died and two are still missing in the Bheri river when they dived into the Bheri River while trying to save their life when they were attacked by relatives and neighbors of a girl, who had an affair with a Dalit youth, Nabaraj BK of Bheri Municipality-4, Jajarkot.

They were chased by the locals (neighbors of the girl). Six, among the 18, had dived into the Bheri river at the border of Jajarkot and Western Rukum.

Nabaraj had an affair with a so-called ‘upper-cast’ girl of that village. He parents and the society were against her marriage with a Dalit girl. Therefore, the youth wanted to take the girl at any cost.

Bodies of Nawaraj, Tikaram Sunar of Chaurjahari municipality-1 and Ganesh Budha of Bheri municipality-1 have been recovered so far, according to the police.

Youths, including Govinda Shahi, Sanju BK, Gopal Budhathoki and Lokendra Sunar are still missing.

Meanwhile, nine people including the ward chairman of Chaurjahari municipality 8 have been arrested to investigate the death of the Dalit youths.

According to police, 21-year-old Nabaraj along with 18 other people had come to elope his girlfriend of Chaurjahari-8 on Saturday.
