Nepal Human Rights Committee-USA has been deeply saddened by the alleged involvement of Prince Paras in the tragic death of singer and musician Praveen Gurung.

In a democratic society where a nation chooses to be guided by the principles of equal rule of Saw, every human being is expected to be treated equally and fairly. Under a constitutional monarchy Nepal has decided to function under the rule of law, the committee strongly believes that no one should be treated above the law. NHRC-USA demands that thorough investigations be conducted in this matter and that perpetrator be penalised and brought to justice.

The Committee regrets repeated similar tragic involvements of Prince Paras which continues-to defame the much revered Nepali monarchy.

Dr Baferam Aryal President,

I was sorry to hear of the sudden demise of Praveen Gurung in an accident reportedly caused by Paras Shah. We cannot bring late Gurung back to life but his departed soul cannot rest in peace if justice is not done.

We hope the guilty is brought to justice, only then can we say that there is true democracy in Nepal. The rule of law should be applied to each and every citizen. Under the law everyone is equal.

I noticed you covered Paras Shah\'s hit-and-run in which musician Praveen Gurung was killed (#4). But why did you hold yourself back from calling the prince a killer? Is he or is he not? You guys have to be a little more brave as brave as the student unions who seem to be taking up the case on the streets of Kathmandu.
