SCHOOL TIMES : Kidnapping scare

Kidnapping has been a major problem for the last few years in Nepal. In recent days, kidnapping of school students has increased in the Valley. We can take example of the last incident when a student of Dharma Bhakta Mathema School was kidnapped and was found dead after three days in the Balkumari pool. But no serious action has been taken against the kidnappers. A child going to school is not sure whether s/he will be able to return home safely.

The security in the country should be tightened so that people involved in such kidnappings would think twice before doing these kind of acts.
