London – 28 September 2005

Nepali police have continued their on-going brutality against gay people and metis (effeminate males), with a savage attack on a group of metis in the capital, Kathmandu, on 24 September.

The assault began with plainclothes police officers abusing and sexually harassing several metis who were socialising outside the Himalayan Java Café.

When the metis refused to have sex with the officers and resisted their violent abuse, they were beaten and arrested.
