KATHMANDU, March 28: Slovak woman Zsuzsanna Takacs who was held in the captivity of Bamjan followers for three months before being released on Monday has said that she still admires the Buddha Boy.

“I love Buddhism and want to become a nun but we don´t have monasteries in our country,” she said in fragile voice. The 44-year-old said she was tied to a tree for three months and was not allowed to meet anyone. The followers of Bamjan had taken her hostage on December 28.

“The members of Bodhi Shrawan Dharma Sangh had repeatedly asked me not to enter the meditation area but I broke in,” she told Republica. She added that she was punished for breaching the rule.

Meanwhile, the Department of Immigration (DoI) is preparing to slap on her penalty for overstaying in Nepal. Shiva Lamsal, immigration officer at DoI, said she would be deported to her homeland. Takacs had arrived in Nepal on December 5, 2010, and has been staying illegally since her visa expired on June 3, 2011.

Nima Dawa Tamang, a trekking guide who took her to Halkoriya jungle, said he is collecting money to help her pay penalty.

Meanwhile, Bodhi Shrawan Dharma Sangh also freed another woman who was held captive. The Sangh freed Aani, a resident of Nijgadh-8, on Tuesday after a police team reached Halkhoriya jungle to look for her.

I am one of the more than forty victims of Ram Bahadur Bomjon, the 'Buddha Boy' of Nepal. After I narrowly survived his 3-months long torture, I decided to inform the public about his crimes. I loved the Nepalese culture and its nature, including the Halkhoriya Jungle, and this connection and my extensive travels, as well as the ability to speak Nepali created an environment to understand the background of the prolonged and repeated crimes that "Maitriya Guru" Bomjon continues to pursue.
