Kathmandu, December 4
The Metropolitan Police Range in Kathmandu has refused to register a complaint that claimed Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli tried to force people for converting to Christianity.
Advocate Bhupendra Prasad Pokharel had gone to the Range office in Teku today, with the complaint that Oli’s activities during the recent Asia Pacific Summit tried to force people for conversion.
However, Chief of the Range, SSP Basanta Lama, denied registering the complaint claiming Pokharel failed to demonstrate adequate evidence and he also tried to politicise the issue.
“He shouted at me. I cited evidence which has already been made public and appealed for an investigation,” the complainant says, “But he said no and forced me to return.”
Pokharel has also accused Ek Nath Dhakal, the Nepal chapter president of Universal Peace Federation, which organised the function, of forcing people for conversion.
