Dhangadhi, Dec 27,2014: The situation of human rights in four districts of far-western development region is disappointing, according to the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC).
A press release issued after the monitoring of human rights situation in Kailali, Doti, Achham and Dadeldhura districts by a team led by NHRC Commissioner Govinda Poudel, stated that the situation of human rights in these districts was not satisfactory.
Mohan Dev Joshi, Officiating Chief at Regional Office, Dhangadhi, said that during the monitoring, they found that the prisoners were kept in a miserable condition for lack of spacious rooms in district jails excluding Achham. Even the food and medicine were not provided on time to them.
Similarly, the district hospitals lack medicines- the medicines to be provided freely by the government. The lack of doctors and health workers as per quotas and other medical appliances has badly hampered the health service, he added.
