Only 24 women out of 78, who were reported missing from three municipalities of Kanchanpur last fiscal year, have been found so far.
According to the Area Police Office, Jhalari, the whereabouts of the 54 missing women from Bedkot, Shuklafanta and Krishnapur municipalities still remain unknown. Most of the missing women were married with their spouses working abroad. Their families filed missing reports to the police. Not a single woman, however, is suspected to have been trafficked.
Most of the missing are aged between 20-40, with a few above 50. Similarly, nine children out of 11 who were reported missing in the same period from these municipalities have been found.
Some of the missing people are believed to have come into contact with their families, but still remain missing in the police reports as new developments were not reported.
