Surendra Yadav kidnapping controversy

KATHMANDU, April 30: Janata Samajbadi Party lawmaker Dr. Surendra Yadav has filed a kidnapping complaint against Nepal Communist Party lawmakers Mahesh Basnet, Kishan Shrestha and former Inspector General of Nepal Police Sarbendra Khanal at the National Human Rights Commission.

Yadav knocked the door of the human rights watchdog after the Metropolitan Police Range, Teku and Kathmandu District Government Attorney Office denied to register the complaint against the trio.

In the complaint, he has demanded immediate arrest of the trio and investigation into the incident.

“My life is under serious threat,” stated Dr. Yadav in the complaint, who was “forcefully” bringing Dr. Yadav to Kathmandu “at the direct order from Prime Minister K P Sharma Oli” on April 22 as part of the prime minister’s “attempt” to split the former Samajbadi party.

He submitted the complaint to NHRC members Prakash Wasti and Mohna Ansari, who in response, said the commission will investigate if his claims are true.
