In Tundikhel



Maoist victims who have been living in temporary camps in Tundikhel are falling ill because of the rain and fall in temperature. The children and the elderly are suffering from cold and other diseases, some have swollen bodies. More than 300 people have been living in makeshift tents here for a month now. Chairman of the Maoist Victims' Organisation Dharmaraj Neupane says, "We have no roof over our heads, nothing to protect us from the damp." He adds that though they had asked various NGOs for help, their requests had fallen on deaf ears. The Maoist victims had asked to be given internal refugee status but the government has remained unresponsive.
