Contempt of court case filed against govt over KC’s re-arrest
Kathmandu Sept 26-A contempt of court case was filed against the government on Monday over the arrest of Krishna KC, former vice-chairman of the Maoist-affiliated All Nepal National Students Union (ANNISU-R), from the Supreme Court premises even as the court ordered his release last week.
Advocate Nandu Acharya filed the contempt of court arguing that there were no sufficient grounds for detaining KC. The former ANNISU-R leader who had been detained incommunicado in an army barrack in Kathmandu got a release order from the apex court on Thursday but was immediately arrested by the police.
Home Minister Dan Bahadur Shahi, Inspector General of Police (IGP), Shyam Bhakta Thapa and some other officials have been made defendants in the contempt of court case.
