Shocking Link to Previous Abuse

The victim has identified her attacker as Amit Kumar Yadav, a teacher from Siraha who previously abused her. In Srawan 2079, she filed a police complaint against him for molestation while working in Udayapur. Yadav pressured her to withdraw the case, resorting to threats and attempting to bribe her. After she refused, Yadav went into hiding.

According to an investigating officer, Yadav ambushed the girl on her motorcycle, demanding she drop the case. When she remained steadfast, he brutally shot at her, declaring, “I will not go to jail without killing you, your sister, and… (the person who helped file the complaint).”

Police are conducting a thorough investigation of this disturbing case.
