KATHMANDU — Main opposition Nepali Congress has drawn the attention of the government over it’s decision of award amnesty to murder-convict Balkrishna Dhungel, who was serving the jail term.

Objecting the government decision to release murder convict Dhungel, all lawmakers from the NC stood up leaving their seats as soon as the meeting of the federal parliament began Tuesday. With this, Speaker Krishna Bahadur Mahara gave time to lawmaker Gagan Thapa to speak about the objection.

Lawmaker Thapa argued that the case of Balkrishna Dhungel could not be handled by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission because he was serving imprisonment with the verdict of the Supreme Court on murder charge.
