Kathmandu, October 13
Dozens of activists gathered in front of the prime minister’s official residence today and staged a symbolic act of ‘injustice’ winning over ‘justice’ to protest against government failure to provide justice to Nirmala Panta.
Protesters chanted slogans demanding that the culprit(s) be made public. Even after 80 days of the incident, police are still clueless about the culprit(s).
A female activist presented herself as a statue of ‘lady justice’ carrying the ‘scale of justice’ which was weighed down by injustice. Raziya Banu, an activist, said they wanted the government and the prime minister to know how the victims of rape and sexual violence were denied justice in the country.
“We want the government to do justice to Nirmala Panta and be serious in cases related to violence against women.
Activists of social media campaigns #JusticeForNirmala and #RageAgainstRape also expressed solidarity with the protest.
