Shobraj's wife and mother-in-law found guilty

The Supreme Court of Nepal has found the Bikini Killer, Charles Shobraj’s wife, Nihita Biswas, and mother-in-law, Sakuntala Thapa, guilty on the charges laid by two lawyers Shanta Sedhain and Rajan Adhikari back in August 1, 2010.

Sakuntala Thapa, a lawyer and mother of Nihita Biswas, and Nihita in their after-verdict reaction had accused the lawyers to be corrupt and they were arrested in response to the charges. They were however released after 24 hours.

According to the court verdict, they will need to be jailed for 7 days and fined Rs. 50 in cash. The 7 days lock-up can also be paid by cash of Rs. 25 per day if they agree to sign a paper stating they will not repeat the mistake.  That means the total cost of freedom is only Rs. 225. I suspect, if one can buy a cup of coffee in a 5 star hotel in Kathmandu with that much money.
