The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has expressed its concern over the death of a toddler due to gun-shot followed by a violent clash in western Nepal on Monday.
Two-year-old Tek Bahadur Saud was shot by the irate protesters at his own home on Monday noon, after the killing of seven police personnel in Kailali riot.
“The death of a child under any circumstances is unpardonable and we are extremely saddened by this incident,” said UNICEF Representative Tomoo Hozumi in a press release.
UNICEF Nepal appealed all to keep children protected at all costs, said the press release.
“All the concerned parties and organizations in the country, regardless of their social, political and cultural backgrounds have agreed that children, their homes, and their study, play and recreational areas must be zones of peace and free from violence.” Enditem
