At a programme organised by the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on the occasion of 73rd International Human Rights Day here today, PM Deuba shared that the government was ready to provide justice to conflict victims.    

He opined, "It is necessary to take the transitional justice to a logical conclusion. We are ready to give justice to the victims' families. We will do what can be done for that."    

The PM argued that the government has been involved to carry out activities in order to fulfil the national and international responsibilities related to human rights and activities are underway to take action against the guilty of serious types of crime including human trafficking.
