Nepal - Ayush son of Sunita Bhattarai case
Sunita Bhattarai left her son Ayush temporarily in a child care center. When she left Ayush at the center, she signed papers she could not read. She had been told it was a free center paid for by Western donations. She did not know her son could be adopted.
When she asked for him back, she was told she had to pay. She worked 3 months to earn money and returned to visit and ask for him again. She was told he was adopted to a family in Spain. She left the child care center and attempted suicide by lighting herself on fire with kerosene.
