- Post Report, Morang

Spokesperson of Netra Bikram Chand-led Communist Party of Nepal (CPN), Khadga Bahadur Bishwakarma has been taken to Bhojpur following an arrest on Tuesday.

Bishwakarma was released on Monday following an order by the Supreme Court to release him.

Sources said he was taken to Bhojpur to face charges against his alleged involvement in the blast targeting Province 1 Chief Minister Sher Dhan Rai during election campaign. He was flown to Bhojpur from Biratnagar.

The Supreme Court had ordered to release Bishwakarma citing police had detained him without abiding by the Criminal Code. SC had also withdrawn government’s attention towards the repeated arrests of Bishwakarma notwithstanding orders from the apex court and district courts in Kavre and Nuwakot.
