Kathmandu, February 13
The Kathmandu District Court on Monday sent the Chairman of five-star Everest Hotel, Mashkoor Ahmad Lari, who was arrested in connection with a 21-year-old drug smuggling case last week, to the judicial custody.
SP Ram Datta Joshi of the Metropolitan Police Range, Kathmandu, says the industrialist has been sent to the Sundhara-based Central Jail.
Earlier, police had arrested him on February 8.
Police investigation had found that he was involved in the smuggling of 250 kg hashish that was seized from a German airport in 1997. He was absconding since then.
