Kathmandu, May 15
The Kathmandu District Attorney Office is preparing to send the file related to a forgery case against former DIG and incumbent House of Representatives member Nawa Raj Silwal so that the case would get dismissed safely.
Silwal is accused of forging his performance appraisal papers in his unsuccessful repeated bids to get promoted as the Chief of Nepal Police last year. Later, the DIG quit the police force to join politics and won the Parliament seat representing Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s CPN-UML party.
Though the previous government led by Nepali Congress President Sher Bahadur Deuba tried to sue Silwal for forgery, the file was pending at the Attorney Office after Oli took over.
Now, with the special interest of Attorney General’s Office, prosecutors are preparing to send back the file back to police requesting ‘further probe’. A source informs that it means the case will not be moved ahead any more and Silwal will be acquitted of the charge.
The ruling party’s lawmaker has been claiming that he was innocent, but just framed by then Deuba government.
