Minister Dhakal finally accepts SC summons

Kathmandu, Feb 23- Minister for Local Development Tanka Dhakal finally accepted a Supreme Court order, 54 days after it was issued. The court had ordered Dhakal to present himself before it in a contempt of court case within 15 days of receiving the notification.

Despite repeated efforts by court tamildars to serve the order, Dhakal kept on ignoring it on one pretext or another. Local newspapers had carried a story Wednesday on the then information minister refusing to accept the court summons despite repeated attempts.
