Kathmandu, October 10

A woman has been found murdered in Sunakothi, Lalitpur metropolitan city-17 of the Kathmandu valley, recently because of a superstition that a rope used in killing a person sells at a high price.

Police have arrested three persons on the charge. They are Sabin Praja (23) of Makawanpur, Suman Magar (20) of Morang, and Prabina Praja (18).

The three have been accused of murdering Kamala Tamang (45), a resident of Sunakothi.

SSP Chandra Kuber Khapung, the chief of the Metropolitan Crime Division, says the trio were told that a rope used in hanging a person makes a fortune. Therefore, they had killed Tamang.

Following the murder, the trio had taken away the victim’s jewellery and mobile phone and ran away.

Further investigation is underway.
