On August 21, police arrested 28-year-old Anil Sarki of Bhimdatta Municipality-18, Janki Tol, on charges of raping a 17-year-old girl. The arrest was made based on a complaint filed by the victim. DSP Prakash Dangi from the District Police Office, Kanchanpur, informed that the accused was apprehended while hiding at his home.

The victim’s complaint suggests that the incident occurred when she was traveling on a bus from Baitadi to Attaria to meet her brother. The bus did not stop at the Attaria Bus Park as intended, and due to the lateness of the hour, the victim ended up at the accused’s house. It was there that she was threatened by the accused, who then proceeded to sexually assault her.

In response to the incident, the victim was subjected to a health examination at Mahakali Provincial Hospital on August 21. Although her health condition was reported as normal, she was placed under protection at the Peace Rehabilitation Center in Janki Tol due to security concerns. The police have initiated legal proceedings against the accused, and an investigation into the case is ongoing.
