Nepal: Man Dies After 329 Days On Hunger Strike

A man in Nepal died Monday after spending 329 days on a hunger strike.

Nada Prasad Adhikari, 56 years old at the time of death, had decided not to receive any more food since October 2013.

The reason for the strike had been to demand an action against those who caused the death of her 18-year-old son during the civil war that took place in the country between 1996 and 2006.

The man accused the Maoist insurgents of being responsible, however, most of them have been integrated into the Nepalese army and many of the cases of human rights violations have been archived.
