Apathy delays justice

Nirmala's mother, who had filed a case against Dilip Bista after watching him confessing to the crime in videos and observing his behavior, wonders if justice is even taken seriously in Nepal. "Initially I was also in confusion. I was told many things that turned out to be rather false. But even after such a long time after I filed a case against him [Dilip Bista] why hasn't he been booked yet?" she questions. "If he is not the culprit, the state must bring me the real one. Why is everyone quiet now?"
