Tikapur events - Tharus do not cause movement, Nepal Police - armed clash between the mutual SSP laksmana nyupane died, including 8 security personnel. This phenomenon is politicized 4 dalriya UT admi...nistration has promulgated a few large Alam Nepalese media, repression and discredit one week to restore it with the agitating

Detailed event information -
Nepal Police - Armed clashes arising from differences between the Nepal Police and 4 were due to 4 men were armed killed, and 17 persons of Nepal police and 22 armed men were ghayeta.
On Monday, the United Struggle Committee on tharuhat Area Administration Office tharuhat Autonomous Region Board and the Board of adhesive Program thiyoandolanakari come back immediately upon the notification from tasera thiyoyasa Khadanand Chaudhry directed the dig was armed on secrecy that would only atiavasyaka start Borno.
Since Nepal Police esaesabi laksmana nyopane the leading hathyara was being prepared, including the police squad of. In the meantime, including nyopanele Armed Fine samudalai his squad ready hathyara said to be the haunt of, and together the divergent movement, this information is found after dozens of APF observance. Nepal, a police chief constable of the Armed baristha SSB urging regard nacalauna nyopanelai Borno, in the meantime tell nyopanele that opts out subcollections with armed squad carki was being heavily criticized. This argument out of the armed sitting room were already underway by thiyocarka carki hathapatama, meanwhile shoot-outs between the Nepal police broad cross it is difficult to tell them that the first shot came from the armed police's side came from. Off hours, as many folks around the situation was already tense, 4-5 lost their lives on the spot of thiyosasastra police constable had run into the same room in order to shoot him, too, and also in room 2 barsiya child also died. It was not until the adolanakari come too.
After some time, an additional squad of Nepal Police and APF came from 4-5 van had a desire to take control of the situation and at the same time listen to the protesters also chanted the slogan of the engagement thaliyoacanaka police fired in the air asru firing of dozens divergent bustle of movement being thaleyata It was, Utah took advantage of the opportunity to call some senior officials through the ministry and the big media to spread the news on the agitators 20-25 of the security forces after the rest of the words that were thiera and large the media has no basis in Nepal very pale.I nabhako that easy, confused rosy picture of the engagement Tharu community had begun to spread hate against fear confusion had spread the fire, the land gradually.
Do not want to interpret the above statement in the name of the injured police to be that one has, it is true that the true percentage also can not say, but did not deny it. The event conspiracy to suppress the protest folk raciyera administration could be an attempt to discredit. Praharikamjora clearing continued, the army could also be mobilized to appropriate plot. The incident and the media the role of administration is very serious questions per s uthaeka doors.
Answer these questions until the summons until a few large media to madddta prasasanale brutal four-party scheme is not intended to say in.

1. The squad of police armed to the squad was quite different if different, fairly equal grant 4 Police 4 How Mario armed? 17 Nepal Police and Armed Police Force How injured was 22? This combination is possible only if i only had a mutual fight.
2. If agitating s domestic hathayara (hasya, axes, spades etc.) if they had against him, police were dying from the bridle where the gun came from the heist?
3. Either cervix razor sharp hathyarako be killed using either abdominal organs such as the breast should be struck down, but why did not seem such lahasa?
4. Using murder to domestic hathyara, must be struck closely. SSB niskida out, at least in the 10-15 policemen on security ring, 10 is possible only through a police hand out the SSB system. Not so easy to come directly from a crowd or a crowd of arrested a murder esaesabi
5. Either cervix razor sharp hathyarako be killed using either abdominal organs such as the breast should be struck down, but why did not seem such lahasa?
6. When no movement is not received within the coming, the room within the 2-year boy died cotton How is that?
7. Not looking forward to the process of investigation of sand, why hattarama antyosti the ongoing killings?
8. The more the number of protesters, even though they also use more sukkai sharp domestic hathyara, some walked one gun before the heist. A spear to kill a Lie takes at least 10 minutes, and 10 minutes and 50 persons golile guns to be cut, so that the number of so many should be killed in the protest, that is the story of this event must be wrong.

Great mediyaharuko very Sided role, cruel, false, nakaratma paravirti of incitement has been found. Mediyale also showed great planning great. The media is very serious questions about the doors towards the limits of the role -
1. Divergent movements aunapako not happen when East is, before the Legislature huge mediyaharule the base 25 of the dead were 20 people spread the news? Where these midiyaharulai this information came from? Is it not the big media jyotisi s?
2. Each event / riots / violence in the dying people and the number of reported growth in order to come to, but Nepal's huge media prints are based on the first 25, again 21, 18, 15 coming the next day 8 tungeka were? (There are many posts s Causa already doors)
3. American Florida jiudai wee rosy person had shown great mediyale the basis and why? This news spread of the uddhesya?

Nation / End of National Human Rights Workers, National Union all condemned the dhyanakrasna this case, the evidence / proof will be deleted faster than fast forward to this event nisapaksa check / investigation curve.

Mentors ...from the business and development fields had been on hand during the 54-hour boot-camp to help participants iron out their concepts and hone their pitches.
