Nirmala’s parents stage sit-in in Kanchhanpur
The parents of Nirmala Panta, who was raped and murdered on July 26 this year, have staged a sit-in in front of the District Administration Office, Kanchanpur from today, demanding with the concerned authority to bring the culprits to justice.
Thirteen-year-old Panta of Kholti at Bhimduttanagar Muncipality-2 in Kanchhanpur was raped and murdered and her dead body was found in sugarcane field the other day.
As three months have passed by since Nirmala was killed, her father Yagyaraj Panta and mother Durga Devi Panta have staged the symbolic protest by staging the sit-in to exert pressure on the local concerned authority to identify and punish the culprits.
They have warned that they would stage sit-in for indefinite time and round the clock until they are served justice.
Prior to the sit-in, a rally was organized to pile pressure on the concerned authority where locals, human rights activities, leaders and students had expressed their solidarity with Nirmala’s parents.
Civil Society’s leader Nara Bahadur Saud said that they would not deter from supporting Nirmala’s case until the culprit is arrested and made public. Nirmala’s mother Durga Devi grieved that the local authority was unable to arrest the murderer of her daughter even after such a long time. She urged the government to take cognizance of their situation and be serious towards identifying the culprit.
