Maheshwor Pahali, Rastriya Swabhiman
4 October 2005

Maheshwor Pahari, 30, died of tuberculosis on 4 October 2005, just one week after being transferred from the main prison in the city of Pokhara, in western Nepal, to the regional hospital located in the same city. Although doctors had been recommending his transfer to Kathmandu for treatment, the prison authorities had again just refused to do this.

Pahari had been ill for several months but the prison guards refused to provide him with the necessary medicines or improve his conditions of detention.
