SC accepts petition against judges

The Supreme Court on Monday accepted a writ petition that challenges the appointment of two judges in the Rautahat massacre probe panel.The government had on March 23 assigned Patan Appellate Court Judge Hari Prasad Ghimire and Jumla District Court Judge Ananta Raj Dumre to probe the killing of 29 Maoists on March 22, but advocate Rajiv Banstola had challenged the government’s decision claiming that it was unconstitutional.On Friday, a single bench of Justice Min Bahadur Rayamajhi had ordered the Registrar to accept the petition.
