Paras caught again in Thailand with drug
Oct 10, 2014-
Thai police informed Nepal’s embassy in Bangkok about his arrest without specifying the charge, and the date and whereabouts of detention.
Thai police released some photographs of Paras—handcuffed, gaunt with a dark face and a long hair. He appears in black trousers, white shoes and black and white spotted t-shirt.
Several social media users reacted that they found his physical condition astonishing. Paras is said to have been caught in the midst of a forest and taken to a police station. He was riding a BMW vehicle.
A patient of depression, Paras suffered a heart attack in 2013. Thai police reported the recovery of a blue plastic tube and two other white tubes used to carry hashish. Police are said to have started recording his statement and begun the process to register a case for contraband drug possession.
He was held with 5.8 gram marijuana, a local newspaper reported. Paras, notorious for his reckless lifestyle, had left for Singapore with his wife and three children after Nepal was declared a republic in 2008. After living there briefly, he moved to Bangkok while his family returned home.
In 2013, he was admitted to a Bangkok-based hospital for nearly a month after suffering a major heart attack.
