Rayamajhi Commission Grills RK Mainali, 3 Others
The High-Level Investigation Commission headed by former Supreme Court Justice Krishna Jung Rayamajhi today interrogated former royal minister Radha Krishna Mainali and three others for their alleged involvement in the suppression of the Jana Andolan II.
Former minister Mainali and outgoing secretary of the Ministry of Information and Communications Kumar Poudel reached the commission office at 11 am to record their statements. They denied talking to the reporters while entering the commission's office.
Similarly, former Chief District Officer of Kathmandu Sushil Ghimire and Director General of the Department of Information Narayan Gopal Malegu are being interrogated by the commission this afternoon, sources said.
Talking to journalists after recording his statement before the commission, Mainali said as an education minister he did not have any role to mobilize security forces. “So I’m not responsible for killing and suppressing people. Those who mobilized security forces should take responsibility for the killings and suppression,” he said.
