Kathmandu: The Special Court on Tuesday released former Executive Director of Nepal Oil Corporation Gopal Khadka on a bail of Rs. 25 million.
A joint bench of the Court Chair Baburam Aryal and Justices Pramod Kumar Shrestha and Narayan Prasad Pokharel handed down an order to his end after the pleading from both sides came to an end. Khadka was released on a bank guarantee worth the amount from Nepal Investment Bank.
The Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) had filed a case of corruption against Khadka on January 7 accusing Khadka of amassing property through illegal means worth Rs. 186.6 million. It had also sought a prison sentence of two years along with confiscation of assets worth the amount and fine.
The CIAA had accused Khadka of concealing the property he gained abusing his authority in the name of his spouse Sharmila Khadka and a woman named Anita Lama. RSS
