Surkhet Father Allegedly Murders Son

In a shocking and tragic incident that unfolded in the west Surkhet district of Nepal, a 21-year-old youth has allegedly been murdered by his father. The motive behind the gruesome act appears to be retaliation for the son’s earlier complaint accusing the father of raping his younger sister.

The police were alerted to the scene after receiving information about the discovery of the body near the victim’s house at approximately 1 a.m. on Tuesday. Upon reaching the location with sniffer dogs, preliminary investigations led law enforcement to conclude that the youth had been murdered.

A police officer at the scene stated, “The nature of the incident shows that it was a murder. He was attacked with a sharp weapon. An axe has also been recovered nearby.”

The victim’s younger sister was also found injured at the same location where her brother’s lifeless body was discovered.

The roots of this tragic incident can be traced back to a complaint filed by the youth against his father four months prior. The youth had taken a bold step by accusing his father of raping his younger sister. The siblings had been living alone in their house, and the father, who worked in India, allegedly committed the heinous act during his holiday visit last September.

According to police reports, the youth had complained after his sister confided in him about the traumatic incident. Since then, the father had absconded to India, only to return to Nepal recently. Authorities believe that the father, upon his return, carried out the horrific act of murdering his son in what is suspected to be an act of revenge for the rape accusation.

The police are currently intensifying efforts to apprehend the father, who is now at large. The community is left in shock and disbelief over this deeply distressing incident that highlights the tragic consequences of domestic violence and the urgent need to address such issues within society.
