KATHMANDU, Aug 30: Human rights activists today organised a sit-in in front of the Prime Ministerial official residence, Baluwatar demanding the government save the life of Ganga Maya Adhikari who is on a fast-onto-death at Bir Hospital to get murders of her son killed during the Maoist decade-long insurgency booked.
As part of 'Save Ganga Maya Campaign', they have taken to the streets and staged the sit-in from 9 to 10am today with black arm bands tied in their arms.
The protesters have demanded justice for Ganga Maya. Ganga Maya, who is on the hunger strike for the past 18 days, is being treated in the intensive care unit after her health deteriorated.
Although Ganga Maya alongside her husband Nanda Prasad launched a hunger strike for the past six years, her husband lost his life to their battle to get justice.
Krishna Prasad, the youngest son to the Adhikari couple of Phujel of Gorkha was killed during the Maoist insurgency after abduction as he was in Chitwan to meet his grandparents.
Ganga Maya said that she would not end her strike until she gets justice. RSS
