Police discovered a body of 22-year-old Sumina Gurung buried in Gothpani of Chaurideurali Rural Municipality-9 in Kavre. They have arrested the deceased's 28-year-old husband, Sonam Lama, and 66-year-old father-in-law Chandrabajra Lama in the charge of their involvement in her murder.
Two years earlier, the deceased eloped with her husband. According to preliminary investigation, the two have been at odds for some time due to caste and family differences. The police began an investigation after the deceased's parents filed a complaint against her husband.
Sumina had been missing since the afternoon of May 15. After Lama was arrested by the police on May 19, they discovered her burial place.
