Darchula woman murdered by brother-in-law for resisting rape

Kathmandu, June 30

Police investigations have revealed that a woman burnt alive in the Shailyashikhar municipality of the Darchula district in Sudurpaschim was murdered by her own brother-in-law for resisting rape.

Anibha Khadayat, 40, of Shailyashikhar municipality-1 was found murdered on the night of June 7.

Looking into the case, police have identified her husband’s younger brother Bhoj Raj Khadayat as the mastermind and arrested him for further investigation.

As the victim’s husband is already dead and her son is abroad for a job, Bhoj Raj took advantage of the situation, according to police.

DSP Prateek Bista of the Darchula District Police Office says Bhoj Raj also robbed her of her gold jewellery before the murder.

Meanwhile, police are preparing to prosecute Bhoj Raj on four charges including rape, incest, murder, and robbery.
