Kathmandu, Jan. 6: The Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) of Nepal Police has completed the investigation on the embezzlement on Lalita Niwas land of Baluwatar and submitted its report to the office of the district attorney.
CIB Spokesperson Shyam Kumar Mahato informed RSS that separate reports of four cases were submitted to the Kathmandu District Attorney. It took two years for the completion of the investigation.
As the forgery on government records falls under the criminal offense, the CIB had earlier initiated the investigation by taking permission from the court for an arrest warrant against 300 accused ones. The reports have shown that various high-profile people are involved in the scam.
The CIB report has however not disclosed the names of the persons accused by the report. “We completed the necessary investigation and submitted the report before the district attorney,” said Spokesperson Mahato, adding that the district attorney would now inspect the proofs and verification then file cases with charge sheet.”
The Kathmandu District Attorney said that it began the necessary works on the report on Thursday itself. The limitation of the case is of two years. So, in view of the limitation, the case must be filed before January 11.
The CIB has been investigating the embezzlement by arresting Ram Kumar Subedi and his spouse Madhavi Subedi two weeks back.
The reports made with investigation earlier had shown that the government records on 143 Ropanis of Lalita Niwas land were embezzled from 2049BS to 2069BS.
On the other hand, the Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) has already filed a case against 175 on the Lalita Niwas land scam.
