Nepal dowry bill to protect women from abuse

Human rights activists say new bill doesn't go far enough to protect women from dowry-related violence.

    Every year, a number of women in Nepal are killed by their husbands and in-laws over dowry disputes.

    Now, a new bill is set to criminalise pyschological and physcial torture related to dowries.
