PATHLAIYA: Police are yet to take action against Ram Bahadur Bamjan’s aides who allegedly held two women captive for ‘distracting’ the Buddha Boy during his meditation.
Members of Bodhi Shrawan Sangh recently freed the two women –– one Nepali and the other Slovak national –– after allegedly keeping them in captivity for three months. Although the Slovak woman, identified as ‘Marichi’, told police that she was chained in captivity, police said they lack enough evidence to press charges against the Sangh.
Bodhi Shrawan released Marichi and the Nepali women on Sunday and Tuesday respectively. Following their release, police handed over Marichi to the Immigration Department.
“We have not initiated any action as the women did not formally file a case against Bamjan’s aides,” said Inspector KP Sharma of Area Police Office.
Sharma said police are conducting an investigation into the case. Bara Assistant Chief District Officer Chandra Bahadur Karki said probe into the incident was underway. Karki vowed to punish anyone found guilty of unlawfully detaining the two women.
Marichi –– whose passport bears the name Zsuzsana Takacs –– came to Nepal to see Ram Bahadur Bamjan.
She has been kept in the custody of Immigration Department in Kathmandu as her visa expired on June 3 last year.
