Nirmala’s parents join Nepali Congress rally in Mahendranagar demanding justice
Sep 19, 2018-
Nepali Congress supporters took out a rally in Mahendranagar, Kanchanpur, on Tuesday, demanding justice for 13-year-old Nirmala Pant, who was found raped and murdered on July 27.
The rally, which included Nirmala’s parents, Yagyaraj and Durga Devi, moved around the town before briefly stopping outside the District Administration Office, where an NC delegation met with Chief District Officer Taranath Adhikari and submitted a memorandum of demand.
The march concluded in the form of a corner assembly at Madan Chowk.
Nirmala’s mother Durga Devi said it was a shame that the authorities had to identify the perpetrators even after such a long time. “The government has failed to offer us justice. This kind of incident could happen to anyone of us,” she said.
Hari Bohara, the district president of NC, warned of intensifying the protest if the authorities continued to delay the investigation into Nirmala’s death.
“This is our last request to the government. We urge the authorities concerned to capture the culprits without any delay,” he demanded. It has been already 55 days since the rape and murder of Nirmal in Bhimdutta Municipality-18.
