  March 13, 2017 By: INSEC

Bandana Kumal , 6 of Bokso VDC-7 with mental disability has been tied with a rope for the past 1.5 years.  She runs within the frame she has been tied up which has become her daily routine. ‘She keeps staring at new people and has the habit of eating whoever gives something to eat.  The family will be in trouble once the rope is unfastened.’- family said.

According to Dhana Kumari, grandmother of a girl, the girl was not mentally disable by birth however she turned to be mentally ill after the devastating earthquake of April 25, 2015.

‘She used to go to school and behave normally. She used to come back home from the school and study what had been taught in the school. She lost her voice after devastating earthquake which was the beginning of bad days in Kumal’s family. She cannot express her feeling like hunger and thirst.’-said Dhana Kumari

The family members are tensed due to the situation of a girl. She does not remember anyone and walks on her own. She would trouble them by moving hither and thither and disappearing out of sight in no time according to girl’s mother Kamala Kumal.

The financial constraints of family have barred them to provide her medical treatment which is why they often visit temple in a belief to see her recover. They said they cannot afford a penny anymore for her treatment since they have lo

ans to pay back.
