TAMGHAS, April 30: The practice of using torture against any people during interrogations in course of crime investigations has been already abolished from the country, said Attorney General Agni Prasad Kharel.
While inaugurating a newly constructed building of the District Attorney Office, Gulmi today, the attorney general said Nepal’s justice execution process was advancing towards the evidence -based system.
He urged people concerned to take help of evidences not coercion to bring perpetrator(s) to book. There should be an atmosphere in which any suspect could give the statements freely and without any torture, he asserted, admitting that he had been unable to give due attention to run the criminal justice administration effectively.
Stating that some matters need to be kept unrevealed during the investigation process, he urged journalists not to put people concerned in trouble by asking questions about such issues.
The building constructed at the cost of 29.94 million has 17 rooms including quarter facilities and victims-friendly chamber.
