Kathmandu, September 13

Newly appointed Chief Justice Om Prakash Mishra has assigned three cases to disputed Justice Deepak Raj Joshee on Friday.

After getting appointed to the position on Monday, Mishra had denied giving any case to Joshee, who was recently declared disqualified for the position of Chief Justice by the Parliamentary Hearing Special Committee, on Tuesday and Wednesday.

But today, Joshee’s single bench has been given three cases. He has not been made part of any division bench.

Earlier, it was reported that colleagues suggested that Joshee resign because being disqualified for the Chief Justice would also mean disqualification for the position of Justice.

Joshee, however, has remained adamant against resignation.
