KAPILVASTU, July 29 : A man was killed in Sandi of Shivraja municipality-5 in Kapilvastu district on Tuesday following a clash between two families following alleged harassment of a woman.

Fifty-five-years-old Chaudhary Gaddhi, a local, was killed in a clash that had erupted between two of the families after Radheshyam Kurmi and Ramkishun Kurmi, neighbors of the deceased, teased his daughter-in-law on Monday around 10 pm. The two families came to blows after she informed about the incident to her family. [More]

  Have your say

Time and again we hear of top leaders going abroad for medical treatment on state-funded expenses. Should there be a cutoff on how much the state spends on its sick leaders? The Week asked a few people for their take on the matter.


The budget for leaders´ treatments should definitely be limited. If they have to go abroad for health treatment, why can’t they go to Singapore or Bangkok where the health treatment is cheaper than, say, in the US or Europe?

Besides, the trend of leaders going abroad for health treatment points to the shoddy health system at home. Leaders should get their treatment in Nepal because that’s what the general public does. And for that, they will first of all need to improve the health system at home. This will also have the benefit of developing the health sector.
