Police to quiz MP-elect Silwal

- Post Report, Kathmandu

Dec 22, 2017-

The Metropolitan Police Range, Teku is planning to summon Nawaraj Silwal to record his statement on a case involving forgery of his performance evaluation report as a contender for the Inspector General post of Nepal Police earlier this year.

Senior Superintendent of Police Rabindar Dhanuk, chief of Kathmandu Police, said they are reviewing the documents. “We will soon summon all the people related to the case,” said SSP Dhanuk.

The Range on Wednesday registered a complaint against Silwal, who was recently elected a member of the House of Representatives from Lalitpur, following directives from the Supreme Court to take action against those involved in forging the performance evaluation report of former Deputy Inspector General Silwal.

The apex court, in the full text of its decision on a case related to appointment of the Nepal Police chief, has said there were discrepancies between performance evaluation reports presented by the Public Service Commission and petitioner Silwal, and that a thorough investigation and action were required against those involved in document forgery. Silwal has denied any wrongdoing while maintaining that the performance evaluation sheet was downloaded by his lawyer from an online news portal.
