Nepalese Royal Massacre -2001 June

The Nepalese royal massacre was a mass murder that occurred on June 1, 2001, at the royal palace in Kathmandu, Nepal. King Birendra of Nepal, his wife, Queen Aishwarya, and seven other members of the royal family were killed in the massacre, which was perpetrated by Crown Prince Dipendra, who was also among the dead.

The exact circumstances of the massacre and the motivations of Crown Prince Dipendra are the subject of much speculation and controversy. Some believe that the massacre was the result of a conspiracy or power struggle within the royal family, while others believe that it was the result of Dipendra’s mental instability or drug use.

The Nepalese government launched an investigation into the massacre, but the findings of the investigation were not made public, and many questions about the event remain unanswered. The royal massacre had a significant impact on Nepal, leading to the end of the monarchy and the establishment of a federal democratic republic.
