Five children have been left in the lurch after their parents Dhana Kumar Limbu and Dillimaya Limbu were sent to jail upon being convicted of murdering Utter Kumar Limbu at Mudebas-8 in Dhankuta on June, 2010.

The Dhankuta District Court had sentenced Dillimaya to 20 years in prison and slapped Dhana Kumar with a 10-year prison term earlier this year.

Currently, Dhana Kumar’s eldest daughter, Tika Maya, 15, is taking responsibility of her four brothers and sisters.

“There’s no one to take care of us,” said Tika, adding that she and her brothers and sisters have left their studies as they have no other option but to work as daily wage labourers to earn their living.
