SC tells CIAA to produce Dixit before it

- Post Report, Kathmandu

Apr 29, 2016-

The apex court has asked the Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority to furnish details on the detention of Kanak Mani Dixit, the Sajha Yatayat chairman.

Responding to a habeas corpus writ filed by Kanak’s wife Shanta Dixit on Wednesday, a single bench of acting Chief Justice Sushila Karki on Thursday asked the CIAA to produce Kanak before the court on Monday. Journalist and rights activist Kanak Dixit was taken into CIAA custody on April 22 on corruption charges. In her writ, Shanta said Kanak’s detention by the CIAA was illegal. On April 24, the Special Court had allowed the CIAA to keep Kanak in custody for 10 days.
