Narayan Subedi, Coordinator of INSEC Karnali Province Office provided NPR 5,000 to Giri, a victim of domestic violence, to go through the legal process.

Coordinator Subedi, while providing cash support, said some victims cannot go through the legal process due to fragile economic conditions. He said that INSEC is helping such victims to go through the legal process. Subedi added that the assistance will help the victim to cover necessary expenses for the process.

The meeting held on August 5 with the member of Human Rights Help Desk decided to provide cash assistance of NPR 5,000 each to the victims of domestic violence including Giri, Pinky Sunar of Jumla Chandannath Municipality and Menuka Oli of Chaurajahari Municipality, Rukum West which will support them in going through the legal process.

Giri has filed a case of domestic violence against father-in-law Dharmaraj Puri, 77, brother-in-law Kiran Puri, 54, and sister-in-law Shanta Singh, 47, in Surkhet district court on July 31.

In the case filed by Giri, it is mentioned that after the death of her husband Dinesh Puri, the family forced her to stay in a barn to perform the ritual without allowing her to perform the ritual with the family. She was also evicted from the house along with her four-year-old son Saksham Puri. The victim is currently living with her parents.
