Kathmandu, January 23
The Kathmandu District Court on Tuesday sent nine suspects of the murder of construction entrepreneur Sharad Kumar Gauchan around three months ago to judicial custody.
The Court, however, released two other suspects, who were arrested by police in connection with the case, on bail.
Those sent to the connection include alleged mastermind Samir Man Singh Basnyat. The bench of judge Babu Kaji Baniya released Shyam Gupta and Raj Kumar Shah on bail of Rs 30,000 each.
Just today, police had arrested alleged ‘chief shooter’ of the incident.
Gauchan was murdered in Naya Baneshwor of Kathmandu on October 9 last year.
Responding to demands of the family and construction fraternity, the government has already decided to declare him a martyr.
