  July 11, 2016 By: INSEC

The concerned bodies said that lack of reservation houses for the women victims of violence in Ramechhap district has created difficulty in their security.

They said that the victim women leaves their justice process in the middle as there is lack of secured housing for them until the ending of justice process.

The participants of the interaction program organised by national Women Commission at Manthali on July 11 expressed their views.

The assistant advocate Basudev Lamsal said that most of the victims leaves their case in the middle because they receives threat from the accused after returning to village as they do not have security.

DSP Mohan Kumar Pariyar of DPO Ramechhap said that those women who are victimised by their family members and relatives do not have a proper environment to return back. In many cases they change their statement or leave the case in the middle. In such case it is important to have a reservation shelter for them.

The women feel insecure due to the lack of reservation house for them said Pabina Mishra, supervisor of Women and children office in Ramechhap.

Bhagwati Ghimire, acting chairperson of National Women Commission said that the incident of women violence is not made public in many cases due to the lack of reservation house as they feel insecure. She complained that the state is not serious in issues of women and their problems.
