New revelations



On 1 June 2001, the Royal murders in the billiard room changed the whole course of Nepal's history. The investigation left many questions unanswered.

When prince Dipendra started shooting, the ADCs of the royal family are said to have entered the room. Biswo Karma Shah, former queen Aishwarya's maternal uncle says, "An ADC who ran in after most of the family members had collapsed raised his gun to shoot Dipendra, but another ADC pushed him away."

The report presented by the investigation committee made no mention of this event. During the investigation the ADCs had stated that they were not allowed to go into the room but this latest revelation casts suspicion on their testimony.

This means that despite the presence of ADCs Dipendra made it out of the billiard room and shot his mother and brother. Another revelation is that after king Birendra was shot, his younger son Nirajan pushed his gun towards his father. But by the time Birendra got hold of the gun, it was too late.

A former high official at the palace says it is possible that someone ordered that Dipendra be shot.

Major assassinations are investigated by the United Nations but this massacre was investigated internally. It still isn't too late to find out the truth. The building may have been torn down but the eyewitnesses, including queen mother Ratna, are still alive.
