Rupa Sunar, a current resident of Babarmahal from Tanahu Byas Municipality, has filed a writ petition in the Supreme Court seeking action against her for ethnic untouchability.
The demand was made in a writ petition filed today against Minister for Education, Science and Technology Krishna Gopal Shrestha, landlord Saraswati Pradhan, District Public Prosecutor’s Office, and Metropolitan Police Circle Singha Durbar.
In the writ petition, it is mentioned that the landlord refused to give the room after finding out that she belonged to the Dalit community.
The writ petition seeks constitutional and national and international legal provisions to take legal action against the perpetrators of caste discrimination and untouchability and to protect my fundamental rights.
A writ petition has also been filed in the writ petition seeking removal of the accused from the post as he had obstructed the investigation by abusing his official position and resources at the police office to release the accused.
As the housewife’s act has hurt her self-esteem and dignity, there is a demand to take action against the opposition under the Ethnic Untouchability and Other Social Discrimination (Fault and Punishment) Act, 2068 BS.
