Women and young girls face harassment while using public transportation in Kathmandu, Nepal. It is common and tolerated, and there is no law to punish the culprits.

Ideas need to be published. Everybody knows that crimes against women are on the rise and India too, is no exception. However, what is the reaction of youths (male) in nepal ? Is it limited to the uneducated class only or the elite are also hand in gloves.

Dear Bhumika Ji,
I like your thought towards the women violence in Nepal particularly in transportations and other areas.

The Govt. is not working properly for all these things that always happening in some sector.

I'm very much thankful for your valuable video message after watching it.
