Exactly a year ago, we had exclusively reported a terrifying story about how a Pastor in Tukvar had been continuously raping a 12-year-old minor, who would live with them, for years until she got pregnant and the truth surfaced.
Following the incident, the police tried to respond quickly and arrest the Pastor, but the cunning culprit had already absconded. The Police, however, had arrested his wife for not informing the Police about the incident even when she was in full knowledge of it.
There began the game of hide and seek, where the Police put all their resource at work to grab the paedophile. The efforts finally showed the result, exactly after a year, when the Pastor was grabbed by them.
We are extremely happy to share with you all that Sishir Rai was detained yesterday by the Nepal Police at Tapleygunj area after the Darjeeling Police had shared his picture with them. The Police immediately sent a team to bring back the culprit. The Pastor is in Police custody right now and a charge sheet will be filed soon by the Investigating Officer.
While no other media house had reported the sensitive issue last year, we are extremely proud that we chose to do a detailed reporting of it, and it gives us immense joy to hear that the culprit is finally behind the bars after a long wait of exactly a year. We congratulate everyone working behind the case, specially Marg NGO, for putting all the effort that it took. We also hope that the Pastor is subjected to rigorous punishment under the POSCO act for the heinous crime.
