Nepali Congress student leader convicted of rape in Parbat

Parbat, October 4

The Parbat District Court has ordered 10 years in jail to President of Free Students’ Union of Kushma-based Gupteshwor Multiple Campus, Shishir Chhetri, for raping a girl.

Chhetri is a leader of the Nepali Congress affiliate Nepal Students Union.

The single bench of District Judge Surya Bahadur Thapa announced the verdict convicting Chhetri, 23, a permanent resident of Kushma Municipality-1.

Chhetri and other youth had assaulted a 16-year-old girl who was returning home from Baglung after attending the Chaite Dashain fair some 18 months ago.

Chhetri was sentenced five years behind the bars for his crime against civil code and equal term in jail on the charge of the organised crime.

Likewise, the court ordered that two minor offenders arrested along with Chhetri would be kept in a juvenile detention centre for five years and one year each.

However, the court has given the clean chit to hotelier Sher Bahadur Hamal.
