Initiation to take save Amar Bam escalated
KAILALI: The Nepal World Cooperation Association, an organization of non-resident Nepalis, has internationally launched a campaign to save one Amar Bahadur Bam of Dhari VDC-5 in Darchula district who is presently in the jail based in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) with death sentence.
The Dubai Court in 2003 had slapped death penalty on Bam including three other Indian nationals convicting them of murdering businessman Sharad Shetty of the Indian origin. Bam had reached Dubai in connection with employment.
According to Rajendra Prasad Devkota of the Association, various posters and pictures related to Bam have been distributed to different countries and various human rights organizations have been appealed to help save Bam.
The family of Bam was provided Rs. 50,000 by the Association recently. The Association claims that Bam had no hand in the killing of Shetty. The victims’ family recently called on the President and the Prime Minister and requested for help to save their kin. RSS
