Durgesh Thapa: I have been working in the field of music video for 10-12 years. I was shooting for a music video at Saurah in Chitwan district. The team including Sah said that they stayed there after drinking alcohol. The next time he went to Kathmandu for work, the victim girl and Krishna Joshi tried to force him to marry her in the month of Asar 2078. His team gave him legal advice and financial issues. He said he did not know anyone.
After Krishna Joshi told Saroj Oli that the girl who played and acted in the music video produced by my company was stressed and died. She said that she had been abused. He later told his friends that he had stopped caring for the victim and was harassing her, adding that he had given her legal advice.
In the petition, the victim has declared that the incident took place in Pokhara on 2077-09-10 and in Tanahu on 2078-01-14 and there is a legal provision to lodge a complaint within one year of the incident.
