KATHMANDU — The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has drawn the administration’s attention urging it to carry out works as per the letter and spirit of the Supreme Court verdicts related to the road expansion.

The constitutional human rights body drew the government’s attention citing the State violated the rights of the local people who are affected by the road expansion carried out in the Kathmandu Valley in contravention of even the Supreme Court’s directives and stay orders.

The NHRC also appealed to the bodies concerned to ensure that an individual’s dignity of life and the right to shelter is respected.

NHRC stated that the Supreme Court had, on December 17, 2015, drawn the government’s attention not to put marks at private houses and pull them down in a unilateral manner while carrying out the road widening works in course of implementing development and road expansion program in the urban areas without fulfilling the due process and providing compensation as specified by the law.

“The Article 25 of the Constitution of Nepal has guaranteed the right to property as the fundamental right of the citizens and the Article 126 (2) mentions that it is the duty and responsibility of the government bodies and an individual to obey the court order,” NHRC spokesperson Mohana Ansari stated in a press release today.
