Read the full statement of Rekha in Nepali and comment:
In our take on the incident, we had suspected of Sumina going through a really bad time and it seems, the real reason behind the anger of the actress is more than the article the journalists have bee pointing to.
We believe, a more detailed investigation on the incident should be done before pointing finger to either the actress Sumina or the journalist Bijaya Awaj.
