Health of the wounded protestors

The condition of three refugee youths injured by the firing of Indian police at Mechi Bridge during the Long March has worsened further.

Rana Bahadur Bhandari of Khudunabari camp, Laxmi Narayan Dhungana and Nagannath Neupane of Goldhap camp has been undergoing treatment at the BP Koirala Institute of Health and Sciences in Dharan. No one, including the organisers National Front for Democracy (NFD) has helped for their treatment.

Bhandari has been shot on the waist, thigh and hand and a bullet is lodged in the rib of Neupane. Dhungana's case is more serious because the bullet pierced his back and injured his liver as well.

Meanwhile, AMDA, which is contract agency with UNHCR to provide health facilities to the refugees, has also refused to admit the injured refugees for treatment. ia June 03 07
