CIAA Stalls Appointment of Registrar at NAMS

The Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) on Tuesday directed Nepal Academy of Medical Sciences at Bir Hospital not to allow the newly-appointed Registrar, Dr Shreekrishna Giri, to join duties.The CIAA also informed the Ministry of Health and Population about its decision as Assistant Health Minister Girirajmani Pokhrel had recently appointed Giri.Dr Giri was appointed after removing Dr Ranjan Prasad Singh from the post without any valid reason, the CIAA said."Dr Singh's removal without any ground was illegal as he was appointed in the post for a period of four years," a highly-placed source at the CIAA said.The CIAA said it has started an investigation into the matter.Meanwhile, the CIAA said it has been investigating the transfer of 10 ropanis of land in the names of a few individuals after the death of its owner Hirakaji Sikrikar of Tebahal, Kathmandu.The CIAA said the land should have gone to the government as Sikrikar had no legal heir who staked claim on it.
