Kathmandu: Nanuka Adhikari, spouse of Prem Prasad Acharya, who self-immolated over a week ago, has expressed serious concerns over the disclosure of her bank details.
Already mourning the tragic loss of her husband, she said the spread of misinformation about her bank details on social sites has added to mental pressure. “The viral spreading of screenshots of my bank details in the social media has been quite disturbing,” she said.
Acharya also said she was not aware about donations deposited to her bank account. Currently, she is performing her spouse Acharya’s 13-day death rituals in her home district, Ilam. “My husband did not resort to self-immolation expecting the pouring of donations. Messages and posts awash in social sites have given me mental pressure. This has added to my sorrows,” she said.
Acharya also said she has not personally urged people to deposit money in her bank account. The funds may have been deposited in the form of support. But, I am being misinterpreted in social sites.”
She said she would file a complaint against the bank and its employees in Kathmandu for violating her privacy by allowing her bank details into public.
