Kathmandu: Rights activists have demanded the removal of statute of limitations for rape. They have sought a prompt amendment to the law regarding rape and the removal of limit for registering a case against the crime.

As they explained, the law regarding rape is weak and it needs to be revised to ensure the rights of minors, adolescents and women to live, to be free, and to feel safe.

A delegation of women rights activists and media workers today reached the National Women Commission to draw its attention to this matter. The visit was organised by the Sambriddhi Foundation Nepal.
