Metropolitan Police Circle Office, Balaju on Monday arrested a teacher of Balaju-based Abhiyan Public School in charge of raping a 12-year-old student residing in the school hostel. The arrested has been identified as Dambar Bahadur Khadka, 25, of Sanoshree VDC of Bardiya district. Khadka, who was also working as a hostel warden of the school since the last four years, was accused of raping the minor who had joined the hostel since Aug 26. The incident came to light after the seventh grader declined to return back to the hostel and was found to be living in one of her friends' home, according to the police. Although the victim's mother and sister live nearby the school, she was admitted to the hostel as per the teacher's suggestion to improve her Nepali subject. The next day after the incident, the student left the school to meet her mother and never returned back. “When the student didn't return to the hostel again, the school and her family sought our help to find the missing student,” said the DSP Santosh Tamang, chief of Metropolitan Police Circle Office, Balaju. “Once we found the girl residing in one of her friends' home, we enquired about the reason for leaving the hostel,” DSP Tamang added. The student then explained that Khadka had raped her on the night of September 2 while there were only six students at the hostel and all of them were below fifth grade while the rest of the students had gone to their respective homes to celebrate Teej festival. According to the victim student, the warden instructed other small students to go and sleep in her room together for their safety. When all of the small students slept, the teacher forcefully showed her vulgar movies and raped her after threatening her, reveals the statement recorded by the police.@myrepublica

Guide of the month: January 2018

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.
