Another 13-year-old girl has been murdered after rape in Rautamai rural municipality 3 of Udayapur district even as the murderers of Nirmala Panta of Kanchanpur walk free almost four months later.
The girl had left home on Saturday to take goats for grazing. Her family searched for her after she did not return home in the evening. Her body was recovered only on Sunday.
Nepal Police Spokesperson Uttam Raj Subedi told Setopati that post mortem report confirmed that the girl was murdered after rape. The autopsy was carried out in the Udaypur District Hospital.
Chief of Udayapur Police SP Chandra Dev Rai said six persons were arrested in connection to the case and four of them have been released. “Two minor boys are still in custody and we have acquired their judicial custody for seven days from the court,” SP Rai said.
