Dilip Mahato was crushed to death by a tipper truck in Dhanusha recently. Mahato was an environmental activist and was protesting against the haphazard extraction of sand and stones from the streams and river basins in his district and beyond. He faced the wrath of the illegal mine extractors and faced the consequences with life. Similarly, in another case Pranesh Gautam was arrested for posting a satirical film review on YouTube in June last year.  In October last year, singer Durgesh Thapa and Samir Ghising were also taken into custody by the police claiming that their creations promoted anti-social values. Apparently, there was no civic voice heard in the street against this.
