Kathmandu, February 19
The family of Bhagirathi Bhatta, who was reportedly killed after rape on February 2, has received the victim’s body on the 17th day of the incident, in Baitadi of Sudurpaschim on Friday.
The body was lying at the District Hospital as the family was refusing to collect it demanding action against the culprit. However, it agreed to receive the body today after the police nabbed a teenage boy who reportedly confessed to both the crimes.
Earlier this morning, all concerned officials of the district had held a meeting with the family to convince it for the funeral.
Accordingly, her funeral will take place today itself, informs Rastria Samachar Samiti.
Bhagirathi Bhatta, a resident of Chadepani, Dokdakedar rural municipality-7 of the Baitadi district, had gone missing while returning from school on February 3, and her body was found the next day.
