    Post Report, Oct 21 2016

    Another supplementary application has been filed at the Supreme Court against suspended Chief Commissioner of Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority, Lokman Singh Karki.

    Advocate Om Prakash Aryal registered the application at the Apex court on Friday seeking the court’s interim order to terminate all facilities to Karki and suspend him from work.

    “He should be stripped of residential facility provided by the government, security, and his financial transactions should be kept under scrutiny as he could misuse them to obstruct the judicial process,” said advocate Aryal.

    Aryal further accused Karki of using police to retaliate SC team, who were at his house to paste the court summons. “Allowing security facility to him is risky,” said Aryal.

    The application seeks suspension of Karki, stating that he has obstructed judicial activites, did not cooperate with the court and could attempt to destroy the evidences against him.

    Dashain In 10 Photographs

    A flower on a lake

    I’ll be honest. When I first heard about the possibility of visiting Mugu, I was hesitant. It seemed so far away. And the trip wasn’t meant to be leisurely. It wasn’t going to be a week of just walking through the Western hills where I could pause and marvel at the changing landscape. We would be staying in Mugu’s headquarter, Gamgadi, at a lodge, with a team of a dozen. The trip would end with a visit to Rara Lake. But still. A week in Gamgadi seemed like a stretch.

    A Dashain, despite it all

    Festivities are but an occasion to celebrate life. But what if there is nothing to celebrate? When life is squeezing you from all sides and you are meandering pillar to post just to eke out a living, what is there to be merry about? Or so I had thought. But having been party to the Dashain celebrations at the squatter community along the Bagmati River in Thapathali, I now know otherwise.
