While the cases of Paul Sah and Susmita Regmi are appearing in today’s headline Nepal, various kinds of comments are being made. After a special debate and discussion by the leaders within the Congress, the memorandum was handed over to Prime Minister Ser Bahadur Deuba and Home Minister Bal Krishna Khad. In a memorandum submitted to her leadership, she said that the time limit should be removed for heinous crimes like rape, adding that the time limit has a great impact on children in particular.
So far, 80% of the victims have been involved in rape, and since they can’t take immediate action and later take the initiative, the practice needs to be scrapped, she said. She said that since our society is still living as a male habi, nowadays women should have the right to live as freely as men. “Women and men, even if they are criminals, should not be acquitted without being punished for their wrongdoings,” she said.
Paul’s fans are also frustrated as the date of one episode after another is shifting for various reasons. It has been reported that the date is being postponed by the lawyers representing Paul Sah. According to Mahalakshmi, the tendency of many people to claim that they were raped after their first consensual relationship broke down is wrong. He has said that the tendency to widen the chest saying that I am good even after suffering is wrong.
Mahalakshmi said that since all women and all men in the society are neither bad nor right, there is a need to develop a tendency of not creating chaos in the name of rights, saying right is right and wrong is wrong. As Paul Sah’s case moves one date after another, his supporters are saddened by what will happen. People are going to the prison every day to understand Sah’s condition.
After participating in a beauty pageant in 2014, a Regmi invited her to a hotel after eight years and said that she had been sexually abused for eight years by mixing some drinks. According to Nepali law, the accused was charged with trafficking and abduction of a girl child and hostage-taking. As the incident took place a long time ago and the deadline for filing the case has expired, the case is dismissed.
The public prosecutor had a special hand in moving the date of investigation and debate in the Paul Sah case. While the case of Paul Sah is being heard on the 29th, as the local level election is on the 30th, there is a special initiative of the government lawyers to postpone this date as well, said Yogyamani Neupane. The date of the High Court debate, which was scheduled to be held on May 7, was postponed to May 20, citing the local level election. The date of the debate was postponed as some lawyers went out to vote on the local elections, especially as the issue was being investigated. The lawyer said that it was wrong for the court to move the time after gathering evidence of any incident.
