Alleged murderers walk free as no case filed
Four alleged murderers, against whom police was preparing to file case, walked free Wednesday after office of the District Attorney here did not file a case at the court ekantipur reports.
According to police, the four alleged-- Shushila Shrestha, Dipak Kumar Poudel, Saroj Nepal and Binod Neupane-- of Bharatupur Municipality-11, had reportedly murdered one Padam Kumari Shrestha of Tanahu district nearly two months ago. They had already confessed to police that they had collaborated in the murder of Padam Kumari and thrown the body in the river.
"However, as we have to follow the legal process, we were compelled to release the alleged culprits," said Police Inspector Prakash Malla.
The main accused-- Sarashwoti Timalsena of the same place-- is however, still at large. Timalsena, along with the four had attempted abortion on Padam Kumari. But after the victim lost her life, they chose to dump the body in the river and maintained a tight lip over the incident.
District Attorney Purna Prasad Bastola maintained that police had asked time for "additional investigation".
