KATHMANDU—the rape and murder of 13 years old Nirmala Panta of Bhimdatta Municipality-2 in Kanchanpur have already passed one and half months. However, the authorities have not yet been able to bring the guilty to book.
The Home ministry has formed a five-member probe team to revisit the case.
The victim’s family is disappointed due to delay in finding the culprit and bringing him under the law. Neither the probe team nor the district police under a new leadership have achieved a significant progress in the cases.
