Ms. Gangamaya Adhikari and Mr. Nanda Prasad Adhikari, a couple from Gorkha (Nepal) who sat on hunger protest in front of Prime Minister’s residence demanding justice for 2004 murder of their teenage son Krishna Prasad Adhikari was forcefully admitted at Bir Hospital, a government hospital in Kathmandu. On September 22, 2014 Nanda Prasad breathed his last at his 333 days of hunger protest. On October 19, 2014 Nepal government promised justice to Gangamaya and ended her 359 days of fast-unto-death. It's already been very long but the murderers haven’t been brought to book, her only son Nur Prasad is not in her contact and the last rites of her husband hasn’t been performed yet.
Gangamaya sought justice through the courts as citizens should, but the administration is not up to providing it. So, besides very weak and deteriorating health Gangamaya once again begins her indefinite hunger protest.
