Girl found dead; murder after rape suspected

Posted by Anup Baral July 26, 2016 :
An eleven-year-old girl was found dead with her throat slit at her maternal uncle's home in Budhabare, Jhapa district Wednesday morning.

The deceased has been identified as Tanuja Koirala, the daughter of Chandra Koirala of Shantinagar-1 in Kamitaar, according to the Police Post, Budhabare. Tanuja had come to stay at the house of her maternal uncle, Dillram Prasai, five days ago after completing her grade five exams.

The girl was found dead Wednesday morning.

Her maternal uncle, Dilliram Prasai, had found her dead when he went to wake her up in the morning.

Family members suspect a middle-aged man, who had come to help Prasai in farming, might have murdered the girl.

According to Prasai, the man had come to help him on July 18 and 19 and had taken leave for two days on Tuesday afternoon. “He knew our house well and must have slipped in from the back door of the room my nieces were sleeping in,” Prasai said.

 Meanwhile, the police suspect that the girl might have been murdered after rape.

The suspect, who earns his living as a farmhand, usually is seen in an inebriated state, locals said.

“It was raining heavily on Tuesday night,” Prasai said. “We may not have heard any noise because of the rain.”

The police said they have launched an investigation into the case.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
