Chaudhary, along with three others, was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CIB) of Nepal Police after a three-month investigation. The investigation has been extended by the court, and statements are now being taken as part of the legal process.
Under the leadership of Sandesh Shrestha, head of the district public prosecutor’s office, investigation officers have been conducting interviews, with statements taken from the individuals involved. CIB Superintendent of Police Nabaraj Adhikari confirmed the ongoing legal proceedings and mentioned that the investigation is being conducted within the extended deadline of four days.
During the statement, Arun Kumar Chaudhary expressed his willingness to return the land if it is found to be against the law, according to information provided by an investigation officer. This statement indicates a cooperative stance from Chaudhary as the legal process unfolds.
The case involves Arun Kumar Chaudhary, Ajit Narayan Singh Thapa, Executive Chairman of Banswari Leather Shoe Factory, and Sanjay Thakur, owner of Chandwag Residency Pvt. The investigation officer will gradually take statements from all individuals involved.
CIB Senior Superintendent of Police Dineshraj Acharya addressed concerns about the arrest, emphasizing that it came after a thorough and lengthy investigation.
