BIRATNAGAR:

A committee probing the death of one Sapana Gurung in Belbari, Morang, on Thursday said Gurung was killed after being raped. Findings made public by the panel here said 14 army men led by Captain Prahlad Thapa dragged Gurung from her rented room on April 25, raped her and shot her dead. Gurung’s seven-year-old daughter Nirmala’s statement has been taken as a strong evidence by the committee. — HNS
