KATHMANDU, Feb 24: Members of the Commission of Investigation on Enforced Disappeared Persons (CIEDP) on Sunday inspected Nepal Army’s Bhairavnath Batallion and its bases at Shivapuri where at least 49 Maoist insurgents were allegedly killed by the army in 2003. 

The inspection, according to the officials, was conducted as part of the final round of investigation from the commission before prosecuting those involved in abducting and disappearing the arrestees from the barracks during the decade-long Maoist insurgency. 

Members of the CIEDP, the transitional justice body established to deal with the disappeared persons and ensure justice to the conflict victims, inquired about additional details on the disappeared persons and grilled the army officials for collecting additional information. 

CIEDP chief Yubaraj Subedi, members Bishwa Prakash Bhandari, Gangadhar Adhikari, Sunil Ranjan Singh and Sarita Thapa and secretary Krishna Ghimire had inspected the bases.
