KATHMANDU, July 9: The House of Representatives has been adjourned following the obstruction of Nepali Congress and Rashtriya Janata Party-Nepal lawmakers on Tuesday.

Speaker Krishna Bahadur Mahara adjourned the House session for fifteen minutes after the NC and RJP-N parliamentarians picketed the rostrum and chanted slogans against the government by rising from their seats.

The parliamentarians obstructed the parliament meeting after Minister for Home Affairs Ram Bahadur Thapa delivered his remarks over three separate incidents including the death of Kumar Poudel, the Sarlahi in-charge of the outlawed Chand group.

The parliamentarians staged protest during the House session stating that Home Minister Thapa's statement was not satisfactory on three incidents. They have demanded a parliamentary probe committee into the three incidents.

Prior to that Home Minister Thapa told parliamentarians that Chand group's leader Poudel was killed during the police encounter.
