NCP (NCP) lawmaker says increasing rape incidents ploy to fail govt

KATHMANDU: Nepal Communist Party (NCP) lawmaker Shashi Shrestha expressed her doubts over the increased instances of rapes as being a part of some conspiracy to fail the incumbent government.

Shrestha made such remark taking special time at the meeting of the House of Representatives on Thursday to draw the parliament's attention towards increased instances of rapes in the country.

"The rise in the amount of such cases in recent times could be a ploy to fail the communist led government," Shrestha had said.
