President’s Office Returns Home Ministry’s Proposal to Pardon Resham Chaudhary

The President’s Office has returned the proposal from the Home Ministry to pardon Resham Chaudhary, who was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment for his involvement in the 2015 Tikapur incident, back to the Ministry.

The petition sent by the President’s Office to the Home Ministry regarding Resham Chaudhary comprises two primary points.

According to sources at the President’s Office, the letter has been sent back to the Ministry of Home Affairs with a request to ensure that the proposal complies with the prevailing law, the court’s decision, and the principles set forth by the Supreme Court.

Tikapur incident had resulted in the tragic deaths of several law enforcement officers, including Senior Superintendent of Police Laxman Neupane, Police Inspectors Balaram Bista and Keshav Bohara, constables Shyam Bahadur Khadka and Lokendra Bahadur Chand, Armed Police Senior Constable Lalit Saud, Assistant Constable Ram Bihari Chaudhary, and Police Constable Janak Negi.

The District Court Kailali and the High Court Dipayal had previously sentenced Resham Chaudhary to life imprisonment for his involvement in the incident.

The Supreme Court has upheld the decision of the High Court.
