Urgent need to monitor Dr. CK Raut’s situation at Bhadra Jail, Sundhara, Kathmandu and save his life
Inside the detention Dr. Raut had been urging to Nepal Government for his medical treatment for a long time. As medical doctors have prescribed him for a medical treatment that may require one or two weeks of hospitalisation at a hospital with an appropriate treatment facility.
But the government had been denying his request. After long time he was transferred from Gaur Jail to Bhadra Jail, Kathmandu on 2nd January for his medical care.
Authority at Bhadra jail started further unnecessary harassment and torture instead of facilitating the immediate medical treatment for him that is the serious violation of the United Nations (1990) Basic Principles for the Treatment of Prisoners.
Furthermore, He has kept with overcrowding convicted prisoners (hardcore criminals) together, proper sleeping accommodation is not providing and other several ill treatments are ongoing with him. In the recent days, instead of being ashamed of its deeds and seeking political solution Nepal government has stepped up his brutal oppression against him abusing the state power.
