The Special Court on Monday released former governor of the Nepal Rastra Bank (NRB) Tilak Rawal on a bail of Rs1 million.

According to Bhim Kumar Shrestha, Registrar of the Special Court, a division bench of Chairman of Special Court Baburam Regmi and judges Ratna Bahandur Bagchand and Pramod Kumar Shrestha handed down the directive.

Rawal was released after he submitted the bail amount as directed by the court. The Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) had lodged a case at the Special Court last month against Rawal. The CIAA had filed the case claiming Rawal’s involvement in the irregularities in printing of polymer notes of Nepal from Australia.

The CIAA has also lodged cases against the then Chief of Note Department of NRB, Upendra Keshari Poudel, and the local agent responsible for the printing of

polymer notes, Himalaya Bahadur Pandey.
