KATHMANDU — Three of the protesting Sanghiya Gathabandhan’s constituents announced Wednesday that they left Gathabandhan, expressing their dissatisfaction over the leadership.

Issuing a press statement here, Lok Dal, Bahujan Samaj Party-Nepal and Loktantrik Party-Nepal declared that they are now no more parts of the dissenting coalition.

Accusing Yadav and the UDMF of ignoring presence and agendas of other smaller parties and bargaining with the government based on their own 11-point demands, the three parties said they would independently carry out struggles putting forth 102 demands.

The Gathabandhan, currently led by Federal Socialist Forum-Nepal Chairman Upendra Yadav, was said to have 30 parties as constituents including members of the United Democratic Madhesi Front.

The District Police Office, organising a press conference on Monday,had made public Dilip Singh Bista (41), of Baghphanta, Bhimdatta Municipality-19 as Nirmala’s murderer.

Locals have shut down the market area stating that police were not being able to make public the true murderer(s) as they are not convinced by the findings of police citing that Bista was mentally unsound, according to the District Police Office.

Transportation has also been halted.

Bista, a resident of Khanna Chauraha area in Bhimdutta Municipality-19, was apprehended near the scene of crime on Sunday, according to police.

Police making public the wrong suspect has infuriated the locals and fueled the protest.

The agitators including various civil society organisations and human rights defenders have been picketing the District Administration Office and staging rally on the street mounting pressure on the police to reveal the facts behind the heinous crime.

Meanwhile, it had been learnt that police have fired rounds of teargas shells to contain the agitated mob.

Nirmala was found murdered in a sugarcane field on July 27, a day after she had gone to her friend’s home to get a notebook.
