Women office bearers and central members of the Nepali Congress have demanded a review of the existing legal provision on limitation, arguing that it was impractical and unjust.

The victims of sexual violence must be ensured justice by meting out punishment to the perpetrators. At the meeting called at the initiation of Joint General Secretary of the party, Mahalaxmi Upadhyay 'Dina', on Wednesday, the central members viewed the laws should be made practical and stringent to reduce violence.

Upadhyay also drew the government's attention to addressing women's rights and constitutionally guaranteed fundamental rights. Even the policy and programmes of the government must address such issues in light of existing social problems in the country, she stressed.

A surge of heinous crimes against women (sexual assault, and rape) are reported of late in the country.
