KATHMANDU, June 16: Lawmakers have called for conducting a thorough investigation into the incident in which Hari Bhusan Kushwaha, the Campus Chief of Ramraja Mohan Bikram Sah Multiple Campus based in Kalaiya of Bara district was shot dead.

Speaking during the 'Emergency Hour' in the meeting of the House of Representatives today, CPN (UML) lawmaker Achyut Prasad Mainali strongly condemned the incident and stated that such incidents of murder have been taking place one after the other. He described Kushwaha as an academic and an honest person. 

Mainali referred to two incidents of killings that took place in Bara district – the murder of the Principal of Bal Ekata Boarding School, Rupesh Sarraf at Kalaiya Chowk of Bara district last September and that of an Indian national at Pacharauta municipality in August last year. He urged the government to be sensitive towards the security of the citizens. 

"The incidents of killing have been growing. The people living near the border areas are insecure and terrorized due to the trafficking in firearms through the open border with India. A decade ago, the Madhesh province witnessed a series of murders in political cover. Many citizens were displaced due to the terror," he said, adding that again a series of killings had started in the Madhesh at a time when people there had forgotten the past killings and were experiencing relief.

Lawmaker Mainali demanded that the incidents of killing be immediately controlled and the criminals brought to justice.

Another lawmaker Ashok Kumar Chaudhary of the Rastriya Swatantra Party also drew the attention of the government to conduct an investigation into the killing of Campus Chief Kushwaha. 

"It is unfortunate that the 'gurus' involved in the teaching profession are shot dead in broad daylight. Four people have been shot dead in the Madhesh province in the last week alone. I call the attention of the government to carry out an investigation into such heinous crimes and bring the culprits to justice," he said.
