Kathmandu, September 12

Undersecretary at the Province 7 Ministry of Internal Affairs and Law, Birendra KC, has agreed to return to the team formed to investigate into the rape and murder of Nirmala Pant, a teenage girl in Bhimdatta Nagar of Kanchanpur.

Earlier on Monday, KC had announced the withdrawal from the investigation team citing the deadline of the team was extended unnecessarily and it would give the perpetrators a chance to run away.

Home Minister Ram Bahadur Thapa had expressed concerns over his resignation the following day and announced to investigate into the issue.

Accordingly, Minister Thapa, Home Secretary Prem Kumar Rai and Nepal Police Inspector General Sarbendra Khanal held a meeting with him to convince for the withdrawal of the decision.

In a statement, KC said he decided to continue with the assignment as doing so would be more helpful to provide justice to the family of Pant than quitting.

He said he and the government were together on the mission of providing justice to the victim.
