Simara: 47-year-old Vinay KC of Jitpursimara Sub-Metropolitan City 1, who has been in jail in Malaysia for three years, has been rescued and brought to Simara. KC was rescued and brought to Simara due to the activism of Immigrant Rights Network. He had worked in various companies in Malaysia for 17 years and surrendered to the police three years ago.

KC said that after the employer company did not return his passport, he worked in hiding for a long time and went to the police himself three years ago. He said that he was able to return to Nepal only after spending three years in prison as he was unable to return to Nepal until he went to the police.

After getting the information that KC was in jail, the Immigrant Rights Network started an initiative for his release. Rudra Khatiwada, president of Bara Network, informed that after getting the name of KC through the Nepali embassy, they have identified the person and taken steps to release him.

On Monday,  network met Rajan Paudel, the city chief of Jeetpursimara sub-metropolitan city, and Bhola Prasad Adhikari, the city’s deputy chief, and informed them that KC had been rescued and asked them to create an environment for earning a living in Nepal. KC, who has been in Malaysia for more than two decades, does not currently have citizenship, so the local government should take the initiative to create citizenship, network president Khatiwada pointed out.
