14 women victimized from incidents of evil practices

Kathmandu, Dec 24: Fourteen women have been victimized due to incidents related to evil social practices in four months period.

A quarterly report from mid-August to mid-December released today by the Kuriti Antya Samaj, an organisation fighting against social evils, stated that the women were victimized by different violence including child marriage, untouchability, and witchery.

Samaj Secretary Loksari Kunwar said that although more women might have suffered from such incidents, all the incidents were not reported due to the Tarai agitation and border blockade.

The report was based on the news published in Kantipur, Nagarik, Rajdhani, Gorkhapatra, Naya Patrika, Annapurna and Nepal Samacharpatra newspapers. RSS
