Two writ petitions for murder have been filed in the Supreme Court against Pushpa Kamal Dahal, the Prime Minister and Chair of the CPN-Maoist Centre.
On Tuesday, 28 families of victims slain during the Maoist struggle filed a petition in the Supreme Court against Prime Minister Prachanda.
The case was brought in response to Prachanda's admission that he accepted responsibility for the deaths of 5,000 people out of 17,000 died during the violence in Tundikhel on January 14, 2073.
Gyanendraraj Aran also filed a plea, requesting Prime Minister Prachanda's arrest and the completion of the probe.
Earlier, a joint bench of Justices Ishwar Prasad Khatiwada and Hariprasad Phuyal ordered the Supreme Court administration to register the petition.
A writ was issued on Tuesday in compliance with the same ruling. The preliminary hearing on the writ has been scheduled for Thursday.
