SC bench seeks report for not registering complaint against Parajuli
Mar 22, 2018-The Supreme Court (SC) has directed the court administration to present a report for not registering a complaint against outgoing Chief Justice Gopal Prasad Parajuli.
A single bench of Justice Hari Krishna Karki on Thursday directed the court administration to table a report with the reason for refusing to register a complaint of Manoj Adhikari against former Chief Justice (CJ) Parajuli.
The court administration had refused to register the complaint of Adhikari citing lack of evidences.
Adhikari has been trying to file a contempt of court against Parajuli saying that former CJ Parajuli’s act of issuing a death threat to senior advocate Surendra Bhandari over phone was contempt of court.
Earlier on January 31, senior advocate Bhandari had lodged a report at District Administration Office Kathmandu demanding security saying that he received death threat from CJ Parajuli.
In his report, Bhandari, who defended Dr Govinda KC in a contempt of court case against him, stated Parajuli issued threat to him first on January 10 after hearing on the contempt of court case concluded. He claimed Parajuli again threatened him following a write-up by Bhandari in a national newspaper about Parajuli.
