CHITWAN, Sept 20: Ganga Maya Adhikari has, in her oral statement given to the court on the murder of her son Krishna Prasad, claimed that her son was killed for personal animosity.

Chitwan District Court's registrar Gehendra Raj Panta Sunday recorded her oral statements from the hospital bed and presented it in a documented form before the court today.

In the statement, she said all the accused except Rudra Acharya in the murder of her youngest son were known to the Adhikari family as they were from the same village, Fujel of Gorkha district.

She claimed that Chhabilal Poudel had visited her at home after the killing of Krishna Prasad and told that they (accused) had killed her son and she, as a hapless victim, could do nothing in the protest.

According to her, Chhabilal and Januka Poudel were the masterminds in the murder of her son after abduction. Other defendants in the case are Bishnu Tiwari, Meghnath Poudel, Kali Prasad Adhikari, Ram Prasad Adhikari, Baburam Adhikari, Himlal, Shubhadra Tiwari and Sita Adhikari.

She said the individuals involved in the direct killing of her son are Bhimsen Poudel and Parushuram Poudel of Chitwan. The two had allegedly threatened the Adhikari couple not to make a sound over the incident and remained silent, forewarning of a bad consequence if the couple ignored their calls.

Krishna Prasad was allegedly killed by the then Maoist cadres after abduction on July 6, 2004 when he was in Chitwan to meet his grandparents. The 56-year-old Ganga Maya is under medical care at Bir Hospital in the capital after she along with her husband launched a fast-onto-death, seeking justice to her murdered son. However, Nanda Prasad had died two years ago.

The District Court Chitwan is likely to begin the hearing on the case on coming September 25.

The Court, for the first time in its history, sent its registrar to record the oral statement on the murder of Adhikari from his mother from the hospital bed last Sunday.

Nanda Prasad, following the murder of his son, moved the District Court Chitwan, seeking justice to his son. He had died on September 22, 2014, after an 11-month battle for the justice of his son.

It may be noted that one and half year after the incident, victim's eldest brother Nur Prasad had filed a FIR against 13 persons over the murder of his small brother. But the court later decided to release eight among the accused on bail and three in general date. Others two had not come to the contact with the court. The main accused in the case Chhabilal is on the run. RSS
