Manhandled



Lying in serious condition with head wounds at Miteri Hospital, the president of the Padma Kanya Campus Free Students Union, Binita Adhikary, recalled how policemen beat up young female students at her campus. ?We were in the streets in front of our campus demonstrating peacefully. Then the police came and started using force to stop our peaceful rally. We ran into the campus premises but they chased us and hit us with their batons, bricks and stones. I was severely beaten and then collapsed on the ground. The police used their heavy boots to thrash and break fingers on my left hand. Just before I passed out, I saw a group of male policemen kicking our vice-president, Deepa Siwakoti, and beating her senseless with their batons. They were acting on orders from Kedar Ojha from police headquarters. Using men to manhandle girls and women is against the international human rights law. This is not the first time that such an incident has taken place. But this has not demoralised us?we shall continue with our movement.?
