The Central Investigation Bureau of the Nepal Police has arrested three persons on the charge of bypassing telephone calls from different places in a crackdown against the national and international racket.

According to a Nepal Police statement, a special team have arrested Rakesh Giri of Lalitpur, Ganesh Basnet of Rukum, currently living in Koteshwor, Kathmandu and Shiva Chandra Roka of Rukum, living in Kaski, Pokhara who was assisting Giri from Pokhara in bypassing calls. Police also lodged separate cases against the three. 

The police have seized 32 ports in Kathmandu and 64 ports from Pokhara which were used for the purpose.  

The bureau made public both Giria and Basnet in Kathmandu on Monday. 

On the occasion, CIB chief Deputy Inspector General Nabaraj Silwal said that incidents of call bypass have increased in Nepal in recent period. He said that people get involved in such racket time and again due to the lure of quick income and weak 

provision in the Tele-communications Act. 

The bureau has so far arrested 141 people, including 31 foreigners, on the charge of bypassing calls and seized Rs 11.68 billion from them.
