Kathmandu, Nepal: The rape and murder case of 13-year-old Nirmala Panta of Kanchanpur become mysterious after a member of the high level investigation committee, formed by the Home Ministry to probe the case, resigned prior to reach on the logical conclusion.
Committee member, Birendra KC, who is also the under-secretary at the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Law of Province 7, announced his resignation from the committee member organizing a press conference in Kathmandu on Monday.
KC has reasoned his resignation for extending another 15 days deadline of the probe committee and the threat he received.
I have a doubt that Nirmala would not get justice because the committee’s term was extended for another 15 days unnecessarily, KC said in the press conference.
It would be morally wrong for me to stay in the committee after the extension of the deadline, because it was not necessary, he said.
During the press conference he also claimed that he even received life threat. However, he did not elaborate about the persons, nature and reason behind the threat he received.
The government had formed a three member committee under the leadership of joint secretary Hari Prasad Mainali with the task to investigate on the heinous crime occurred in Kanchanpur district.
