Special Court slaps 1-yr jail to notorious gangster Ganesh Lama

- Post Report, Kathmandu

Aug 9, 2018-The Special Court on Thursday handed down one year jail sentence to notorious gangster Ganesh Lama on the charge of amassing property through illegal means.

A Special Court bench chaired by Baburam Regmi along with Justices Dwarikaman Joshi and Ratna Bahadur Bagchand has slapped one year jail sentence to Lama and confiscation of property worth Rs 4.5 million that he earned through illegal means.

Five years ago, the Department of Money Laundering had lodged a case against Lama and five members of his family for amassing disproportionate property worth Rs 270 million.

Lama, who is doing time in the Dillibazaar-based central jail on arms and ammunitions case, is the first notorious gangster who faced an action in the case filed by the Department of Money Laundering.

The court, however, has acquitted others members of Lama’s family.
