Experts have said that arresting Kailash Sirohia, chairman of Kantipur Media Group, by the state in retaliation for writing a news story about the involvement of Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Ravi Lamichhane in defrauding the cooperative is a serious violation of international human rights law.

The National Human Rights Commission has stated that the state's conspiratorial attack on Sirohia in retaliation for writing the news has violated the inalienable right of a person to live with dignity and the right to freedom of press and expression. "If the state creates any kind of obstacle on the media, it will not be tolerated, other countries have also commented with interest," Suryaraj Dhungel, a member of the commission, said, "Press and freedom of expression is clearly considered a fundamental right by international human rights law and our constitution, against this." Attacking is a violation of human rights.' "It is the unconstitutional character of the state to use false cases to intimidate the media," he said, "the government should answer both the parliament and the people."

Similarly, the judicial circle has also commented that the state has transgressed the limits of law and constitution for arresting Sirohia in a vindictive manner. "The state should first listen to citizens and arrest only those who are found guilty," said Gauri Bahadur Karki, the former judge of the special court, "However, Sirohia was arrested without even being given a chance to be interrogated in a very common dispute where the general details of citizenship were not found. This is a violation of both the rule of law and the provision of the constitution It is against. Umesh Mainali, the former chairman of the Public Service Commission, who is also the former secretary of the Ministry of Home Affairs, said that the vindictive behavior of the state against Sirohia has exceeded the limit. "It is not necessary to arrest someone in a case where the general details of citizenship are not met. If that is to be done, there are thousands and thousands of people who do not have such details, should they be arrested?," he said. This has hit the very soul of democracy.'

President of Nepal Bar Association Gopalkrishna Ghimire called the arrest of President Sirohia as a scandalous incident and called on the government to oppose the attack on the media. He said that the media house established as a warrior of the democratic movement was attacked in a planned manner. "Looking at the incident, it looks like revenge. If the government is going to release whoever it wants to arrest, why is there a need for freedom of the press in the constitution?"

Similarly, Professor Kedarbhakta Mathema has said that the incident of Sirohia's arrest is not suitable for a democratic system. He said that when the news about the cooperative was being published in the prestigious newspaper of the country, it was done to intimidate and intimidate. He said that such activities would restrict freedom of the press and human rights in the name of democracy. . If a complaint is filed against someone, they should be given a chance to be vindicated. Arresting at once in a guerilla style is not suitable for a democratic style,'' he said. Things are happening that are not appropriate in the democratic system.'

Former Ambassador Prof. Vijayakant Karna commented that Sirohia was arrested to stop the cases of co-operators and other corruption issues. The work has been done by asking the Ministry of Home Affairs to file an application with the police. If there is any problem, the Chief District Officer will first call for investigation,'' he said, 'but the police have arrested them directly. With law and justice, there has been revenge rather than principle. Former ambassador Karna said that the state cannot suppress the fundamental rights of citizens because of writing news. He said, "This step of the government has narrowed the fundamental rights of the common people." The media and the citizens have been made to suffer. This is against democracy.'

Former ambassador Yuvanath Lamsal said that the government did not do a good job by arresting Sirohia on Tuesday. Lamsal, who is also the former editor of 'The Rising Nepal', said, 'Yesterday it was repeated like what Gyanendra Raja did. I wish I hadn't done this. It is not right to go to the media house and arrest them.''

Former ambassador Rajeshwar Acharya has said that the government's move to arrest President Sirohia violates the constitution, law and international human rights. He said that the government has taken a short-sighted step. He said, "If there was something, it could have been called and investigated." Ravi renounced his foreign citizenship and took a new one. He was not arrested at the time. However, what the state is doing now on the issue of Sirohia is wrong from the point of view that it is not a citizen.'' "The current incident on Sirohia has been done purely for the sake of revenge," he said, "It is against the constitution, fundamental rights and principles of universal justice."
