I would like to help

Dear gthapa, i is so sad that this is happening in your family and for sure you have to act quick. I just needed more information from you so that i know how best to advice you in this matter. What law does Nepal use and is the police effective in handling criminal cases. Are there ngos in Nepal that can take immediate action. However you should note that you mother has to appreciate the fact that she has a right to be free from cruel and inhuman degrading treatment. Once she appreciates this then you can advice her to go to the police and make a statement. I am saying this because you are not with her to witness these acts and if she does not complain the case may be frustrated. Please keep updated on this issues. Stay blessed my dear sister
