Family members of the seven-year-old rape victim from Bara, who succumbed to her injuries, performed her final rites on Saturday after the District Administration Office (DAO) agreed to meet their demands.

Following direction from the Cabinet to provide compensation to the victim’s family at the earliest, the DAO agreed to address five of the seven demands put forth by protesters united as the ‘Beti Bachau’ Struggle Committee, Kalaiya. Besides providing compensation, the DAO has promised to install CCTV cameras in Kalaiya, book the perpetrator who kidnapped and murdered four-year-old Ashish Sah on February 27, carry out an investigation into the deaths of four children in Kalaiya in the past year, and work with locals to tighten security in Kalaiya. Kanhaiya Gupta of Motibagh had raped her after abduction on February 20. She died in Kathmandu after 17 days.
