Kathmandu, Oct 28-The Patan Appellate Court today granted permission to the Kathmandu District Police Office (KDPO) to detain former vice-chairman of the Maoist-aligned student union, ANNISU-R, Krishna KC, in judicial custody for the next 12 days.
A divison bench of justices Krishna Prasasd Shrehstha and Hari Babu Bhattarai gave the permission following today's hearing. The KDPO had sought 25 days detention for KC in order to conduct investigation into the charges against him.
Pleading on behalf of KC, senior advocate Bishwo Kanta Mainali sought the court order to the authorities not to detain KC without any charge. He had also demanded the court finish the investigation and prosecution soon if there was any charges against him or release him as per the order of the Supreme Court a month ago.
