Students protest demanding justice for Nirmala

KANCHANPUR: Nepal Student’s Union (NSU), the student wing of Nepali Congress, staged a demonstration demanding justice for Nirmala Pant in Mahendranagar on Monday. “It has been two months since the rape and murder of 13-year-old Nirmala Pant, but the authorities are still staging drama in the name of investigation,” NSU leader Keshav Raj Joshi said.

The NSU has warned of intensifying the protest if the authorities fail to arrest the persons who raped and murder Nirmala. The teenager was found raped and murdered in a sugar cane field on July 27, a day after she was reported missing.Police are yet to identify the people involved in the incident.

“We are looking into the case from a different angle as our previous approaches led us nowhere,” said Deputy Superintendent of Police Krishna Raj Ojha.He also claimed that police have achieved a significant progress in their probe.
