DHANGADHI, March 6: Minister for Home Affairs Ram Bahadur Thapa has vowed to find and book the murderers of 13-year-old girl Nirmala Panta of Kanchanpur.

“We will book the culprits as soon as possible,” said Home Minister Thapa talking to journalists on Wednesday, who arrived in Dhangadhi to participate in the security seminar.

“Investigations are under way in this connection.”

“Complications in the investigation occurred initially due to some lapses in the initial phase. But the rapists and murderers will be found at any cost.”

The 13-year old school girl, Panta, of Bhimduttanagar, Kanchanpur was found raped and murdered in a waterlogged sugarcane field on July 27.

Despite the formation of multiple probe committees to investigate into the rape and murder case, the police are still clueless about the real culprits behind the horrific crime.

According to the home minister, final preparations have been going on in the federal parliament for formulating the laws related to federal police and the state police.
