INSEC Assists Domestic Violence Victim in her Journey to Justice

  August 2, 2022 By: INSEC

Menuka Oli, 21, of Chaurjahari Municipality-12 Jogineta, a victim of domestic violence, has been assisted by the Informal Sector Service Centre (INSEC) on July 31, 2022, in her judicial process.

After the victim asked INSEC for assistance sharing her fragile financial condition, INSEC provided financial support to go through the legal process.

Byunjhana Pun Devkota, the coordinator of the District Recommendation Mechanism and the Chairperson of the Women’s Human Rights Defenders Network, handed over NPR 5,000 to the victim.

Kiran Poudel, Coordinator of the Adhikar-II, a project implemented by INSEC, informed that according to the decision taken by the Human Rights Help Desk on June 24 the support was provided.

She complained that the family had told her that they will not harm her anymore but later gave tortured her further.

Due to the end of the financial year, all the work of the court was stopped, so the process was delayed.

The victim alleged that the victim’s 52-year-old father-in-law Gangaram Khadka evicted her from the house after her husband died two months ago while he was going to India for work.
