    This guy is a disgrace to his family and a huge insult to the nation as a whole,
    This is not how i want to describe my country to the tourists, he deserves the punishment and parents need to be more alert your daughter not only has to fear the world outside but even their own homes for Godsakes truly disappointed to be a bhutanese with this news

    Really a father is worst than the animals.
    It is shame on all the fahers and it is a BIG reminder
    for fathers who are also like him and it suited him 10 years
    prison.
    Thought for all

    He deserves the punishment. Sometimes the Capital punishment is required looking at the degree of offence/crime. Both the house should take it as an agenda in the coming session and not necessarily waiting from the DTs (20 dzongkhags).

    OTHERWISE SHOW HIM LIVE ON BBS…THAT WOULD BE THE BIGGEST PUNISHMENT FOR AS WELL AS FOR OTHERS, WHO KNOWS THERE COULD BE SOME MORE, SAME LIKE HIM.

    Oh Gosh! This father should be given third degree in the prison. The relation between the fathers and daughters are so precious and revered. This fellow has brought defamation to this beautiful relationship. Our government should enact strict law for such crime. Daughters or say girls are not save outside their home and if the safety is a big question inside the home…then where would they go?

  8. ECAEP

    Its very disappointing for every girls to be born in this world when their own father do such things which is unbearable to her… give him a live imprisoned so that he would realise it and it will be a BIG REMINDER to other fathers too…

  9. Kuenley Penjore

    Everyone is saying that law in Bhutan is quite weak. The number of rape incidences shows that law is very weak. We must really review current law on rape and make more strick. It is really shameful for everyone of us.
