Kathmandu, November 17:

Sunita Lama, who was handed over to her aunt Shashi Lama and father Bhadra Bahadur Lama at Ward Police Office, Maharajgunj, on November 13, is yet to contact the District Administration Office. Mukti Nepal, an NGO which was sheltering the child with a false name to bring foreign aid was said to have handed over the child to her aunt and father. But, it is still unclear whether the child was handed over to the father or not.

“Though the paper at police station says that she has been handed over to her father, the DAO is yet to verify that her father and family received the child,” said Sthaneshwor Devkota, CDO of Kathmandu.
