Three arrested against Kailali quarantine gang rape case

A 31-year-old woman who was staying in a quarantine facility at Shahid Smriti Secondary School, upon her return from India, was allegedly raped by the three men – one health worker and the other two quarantine volunteers at Lamkichuha Municipality-1 in Kailali district on Saturday.

 The woman filed the complaint on Sunday following the three were arrested.

Locals have blocked the Lamki road section of East-West Highway, staging a protest against the gang-rape case.

People have come out to the streets demanding fair investigations into the case.

Meanwhile, the ward office, in a statement issued Monday, said, it has decided to stop all services claiming that the protestors have damaged the office and the ward representatives and staffers are under security threat. The services will be stopped till the culprits face trial and security of all ward staffers are guaranteed, the statement reads.

The local level office further stated that the volunteers that have been accused of gang-rape had gone to the quarantine facility by themselves and were not deployed by the ward office.
