  A crime obscured within honor  
  BY REPUBLICA  
 
People often take a young girl’s revealing clothes as a triggering factor for rape. But how do you justify raping old women and children?

Everyday, we hear or read about some child, young woman or old lady being raped by strangers and family members. In 2070/71 alone, until the month of Jyestha, the Women and Children Service Directorate of Police Headquarters has recorded 810 cases of rape, 356 cases of rape attempts and 14 cases of unnatural rape.

Advocate Rama Shrestha is the Legal Officer at Children-Women in Social Service and Human Rights (CWISH) and Advocate Uma Tamang is the Legal Officer at Maiti Nepal.

  • Conflict delays preparation for Asian Games
    SANJEEV KUMAR SHAH
    KATHMANDU, July 23: The dispute between the Ministry of Youth and Sports (MoYS) and National Sports Council (NSC) is likely to delay the closed camp for the 17th Asian Games as the two sports bodies have separate plans to start the closed camp. Differences between MoYS and NSC, especially between the Minister for Youth and Sports Purushottam Paudel and NSC Member Secretary Yuvraj Lama has also made Nepal´s participation in Asian Games uncertain. Paudel belong to CPN-UML and Lama is close to UCPN (Maoist) and was nominated at NSC by Jhala Nath Khanal led collation government in June 2011.

    Lama was sacked by Minister Paudel on May 16 but was re-instated few days later by Supreme Court. The conflict between two key office bearers of Nepal sports fraternity has kept players and officials in dilemma.   [More]
