‘Reconciliation for Gold’- Rape Victim Deprived From Justice

  November 27, 2020 By: INSEC

Deepak Dhami, 22, of Sigas Rural Municipality-2 is accused of raping an 18-year-old girl on June 5, 2020. The victim and the accused had decided to reconcile the incidence with 11.67g (1 Tola) of gold.

The incident and the reconciliation have become public after the victim’s brother was beaten without giving the gold mentioned in the agreement.

According to the victim, the incident was mediated by the relatives of the victim and the villagers on July 28. The reconciled document states that there was a quarrel between the victim and the accused.

The victim has now reached the district headquarters in search of justice, saying that a compromise was reached under the pressure of her family and villagers.

The victim has also alleged that the accused went to India after reconciling the incident out of fear.

The victim’s sister did not know that her brother had arranged the incident, but now that the victim’s sister has found out about it, she has come to the district headquarters with her sister for justice.

”She was raped on June 5 after threatening to kill her while walking for two hours to fetch water. The villagers tried to save the rapist by fixing the incident within the village, ”said the victim’s sister.

The victim and her relatives have requested to meet the INSEC representative on the evening of November 25 as soon as they reach the district headquarters to seek justice.

The INSEC representative has also discussed with DSP Narayan Adhikari of the District Police Office for justice.

During the discussion, DSP Narayan Adhikari requested to send the victim to the District Police Office immediately. The victim is preparing to lodge a complaint at the District Police Office.
