KATHMANDU: The INSEC has decided to present this year’s Prakash Human Rights Award to Rukaiya Khatun.

The Award instituted by the Informal Sector Service Centre (INSEC) would be given to 45-year-old Khatun in recognition of her over two decades of contribution to building an exploitation and disparity-free society, said Kundan Aryal, Chairperson of INSEC.
