Following a court ruling, two daughters of Bir Chand Ajad of Banke district will now get their shares of paternal property. 21 and 19-year-old Sanjaya and Shanti Ajad filed a case in the district court demanding their shares of paternal property last year. They moved the court, complaining that their father was not supporting them for even their food and education. The two sisters have been living separately with their mother since they were evicted from their father's house 18 years ago. They were forced to leave because their father had expected a son from his wife. Bir Chand had married another lady after his first wife went away. "We are happy that we have received justice even after a long period of 18 years," Sanjaya said in a triumphant mood. "Better late than never."
