JAJARKOT, March 31: Nepal Tarun Dal(NTD), a sister organization of Nepali Congress(NC), has imposed a strike in Jajarkot on Friday citing that police have not apprehended the murderers of NC leader Rabindra Shamsher Shah who was cruelly assassinated four days back.
NTD has said it is mysterious that police have not arrested the perpetrators yet.
NTD leaders have challenged the local administration to apprehend the perpetrators themselves if the latter continues to show indifference to the search for them.
District chairman of the NTD Hari Chandra Basnet has accused the local administration of spending days in a relaxed manner in the name of an investigation into the assassination.
The strike has brought transport, business, educational institutions and other normal life activities to a complete halt.
Non-governmental organizations active in the district have also joined NTD in putting pressure upon the local administration for the immediate apprehension of the assassinators.
District Police Chief DSP Bhabesh Rimal has said they have been unable to identify the perpetrators so far despite a painstaking investigation into the incident.
