CIAA grills ex-minister G.C
The Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) Friday interrogated former royalist minister Khadga Bahadur G.C in connection with the allegation of misuse of state funds to suppress the Jana Aandolan-II.
G.C, the local development minister in the erstwhile royal government, went to the CIAA office to record his statement as per a summon order issued few days earlier. He is one of dozens of key functionaries of then royal regime who have been accused of corruption and suppression of last year's mass uprising.
Acting on the report of the Rayamajhi Commission, the anti-corruption body has already interrogated the vice-chairmen duo of the royal regime, Dr Tulsi Giri and Kirti Nidhi Bista, then ministers and former Chief of Army Staff (CoAS) Pyar Jung Thapa on misuse of state funds.
The government has authorised the CIAA for investigation into corruption-related cases as pointed out by the Rayamajhi Commission.
