The tenure of the High-Level Investigation Commission headed by former Supreme Court Justice Krishna Jung Rayamajhi has been extended for another three weeks.
The term of the commission probing the suppression of the April mass movement was supposed to end on Friday.
A cabinet minister, on condition of anonymity, said the government has decided to extend the panel's tenure till November 16. "We extended the panel's tenure following a request," he said.
Stating that it was still working on its report on the suppression and killings during the Jana Andolan-II, the panel had recently requested the government to extend its tenure.
According to the spokesperson of the commission, Dilli Raman Acharya, the members of the commission are working hard and will submit their findings to the government as soon as possible.
