He expressed sadness over the incident in which a woman who was staying in the Chhaugoth (a shed where menstruating women are kept in seclusion) in Achham had been raped by her relative, and demanded an investigation into the incident and action against the culprits.

Nepali Congress lawmaker Kamala Panta said corruption was rife in the country and stressed on carrying out works for its control both at the political and administrative levels.

She said corruption takes place through the collusion of these both parties, calling on all to work to control this menace by finding out its causes.

Lawmaker Panta described the registration of cases of corruption against some government employees including the Chief Secretary Aryal as regrettable and said this incident has tarnished the image of the entire civil service.
