Kharidar held while making fake passport

The Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) Sunday arrested two individuals including a Kharidar of Lalitpur District Administration Office red handed while they were involved in making a fake passport. After the arrest Arjun Ghimire and the broker Tuknath Dhakal (Ramesh) are kept under CIAA custody for investigation, said Ratnakaji Bajracharya, the spokesman of the CIAA. Ghimire was found carrying Rs. 3,000 and Dhakal Rs. 26,000. After the CIAA was informed about the illegal activities in the office, it had assigned a team to investigate into the matter. The gang was found to be involved in providing passport to the individuals who are from outside the Kathmandu Valley with the help of fake document, CIAA source said. The Commission had already taken action against Kharidar Ghimire on a similar case and he was punished with five years' grade stop. Even after the action of CIAA, Ghimire was recommended for promotion as he concealed the documents that implicated in corruption but the CIAA finally stopped his promotion, said Bajracharya.
