Oct 16, 2018-
The family of Rita Tamang, who was raped and murdered in Khotehang Rural Muncipality-9, Khotang, in February last year, has demanded for justice.
At a programmed organised on Monday, victim’s father Bir Bahadur Tamang urged lawmaker of the federal parliament Bishal Bhattarai to help find the culprits involved in the crime.
Rita, 17 at the time, was raped and subsequently murdered at the Kuseausi forest in Simpani area on February 9, 2017. The incident took place when the victim was returning home from work at Simpani Bazaar.
The locals have also complained of feeling unsafe as the authorities concerned have failed to arrest the culprits till date. They blamed police for not taking the case seriously. “The culprits are roaming freely in the society. The security personnel could detain them if they investigate the case sincerely,” said a local woman.
