Five Nepalis go missing in Libya

By Our Reporter
Five Nepali youth heading to Italy illegally had gone missing in Libya for the past few weeks. Although the government has made efforts for the safe release of those five Nepali youths kidnapped by local Libyan human traffickers, no progress has been made.
Abducted five Nepali citizens include Ranjit K.C, Omraj Gurung and Suresh K.C of Parbat district and Dirash Thapa and Aman Loja of Myagdi district.
They were taken to Libya via New Delhi and Dubai some two months ago by human traffickers. Each of the abductees had paid Rs. 1.3 million to the brokers.
Unofficial sources said they were kept at Misrata is situated at a distance of 187 km to the east of Tripoli, the capital city of Libya by local human trafficking agents.
But the authorities were failing to trace the exact place where they were held hostage.
Family members of the abducted youths said they had been out of contact for two weeks.
The Police in Nepal had arrested two agents, who had their role in sending the youth abroad, from Kathmandu and Pokhara and they include Santosh Parajuli and Jasadwoj Gurung.
