Kathmandu, January 14
Police have arrested a youth for his alleged involvement in a notorious sexual activity inside a public bus in Kathmandu around a year ago.
Rabin Ruchal aka Rabin Sarki was arrested from Chitwan district on Monday evening. Police paraded him amidst a press conference in Kathmandu on Tuesday.
In early 2019, a video showing a man masturbating and ejaculating on hairs of a woman sitting in front of him in a passenger bus had gone viral on social media. Following that, stakeholders had demanded an investigation into the case and action against the culprits.
However, police were unable to speed up the probe as the video did not show any face.
But now, police claim that Ruchal already confessed to the crime. He reportedly told the investigators that he did the offence with an objective of producing a video so that he could earn money from it. However, after the public condemned the act, he ran away to India. Ruchal was working as a rickshaw driver in Kathmandu till last year.
He stayed in Delhi and Kashmir of India for around seven months before returning to his home in Chitwan.
