Partners in crime, Naya Janadisha



Five years since the Gaur massacre in which 27 Maoist cadres were brutally burnt alive, stabbed with spears and crushed to death with rocks, the murderers are still walking free. And despite being in government for most of the time since 2006, the Maoist party has not made any attempt to bring the guilty to justice.

After the incident, Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal had visited Gaur and vowed to punish the culprits and compensate the victims, but he failed to deliver on his promises even when he was the head of state.

The Maoists had set up a probe committee led by politburo member Chandradev Khanal 'Baldev' which identified CA members Baban Singh, Upendra Yadav and Ramma Debi from MJF as the perpetrators. Ram Kumar Sharma, the other accused, went on to join the UCPN (Maoist) party and is currently a Central Committee member.

Jogendra Prasad Jaiswal, father of Ramakanta Jaiswal of Pothiya VDC who was among those killed on the fateful day expressed his frustration, "Instead of putting the criminals behind bars, the Maoists welcomed them into their party."

The masterminds behind the crime are now leading the Madhes campaign and the ones who were supposed to deliver justice are close allies of the murderers.
