Deported Nepali sex offenders: What’s going on?
Bipin Jangam, 28, was deported to Kathmandu, Nepal by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), an immigration body of the U.S. government in 2006. Jangam, a student, drove from Minnesota to Wisconsin, more than five hours, with the intention to have sex with a 13-year-old girl he met on the Internet. An ICE officer posed as the girl. The officers also found marijuana on him.
A Google search of the name “Bipin Jangam”, shows a few articles written by a person with the same name on FES-Nepal‘s Web site, a German non-governmental organization; and a quote by someone with the same name on Spotlight, a weekly magazine based in Kathmandu. The article in Spotlight explores why many students are leaving Nepal to study abroad, and the article is titled, “Paradise Lost or Gained?”
I wonder what the Nepali government has done about him and other offenders such as, Deepak Bist, 22, when arrested, who was caught live on national television on NBC Dateline’s “To Catch A Predator”. Bist is a chemistry teacher and lived in Florida.
Some years have passed and no one has paid attention to them in Nepal. Were they punished or have they continued with their sexual spree? Are there more lurking in our local neighborhoods? Who’s watching?
