Refugees’ fast-unto-death continues

BHADRAPUR The Bhutanese women refugees in Damak of Jhapa district have continued their fast-unto-death protest for the third consecutive day, Thursday.

Refugees Parbati Chauhan, Tulasa Dhakal, Iramaya Khatri, Chandra Maya Khadka and Renuka Magar led by Durgadevi Bista had begun protest demanding refugee certificate and relief.

Earlier, the refugees had ended sit-in after the local administration expressed commitment to address their demands within five days in November.

Bista, who is the Coordinator of the protest, said they would continue the fast-unto-death until their demands were met.

As many as 3,649 Bhutanese refugees have no refugee certificates in the camps in Jhapa and Morang districts. RSS
