Nagarik Unmukti Party lawmaker Arun Kumar Chaudhary, found to be a fugitive who had yet to serve a six-month jail sentence ordered by the Kailali District Court, has been arrested.

A police team arrested him in Kohalpur of Banke on Thursday for the implementation of the verdict, informs DIG Poshraj Pokharel, the spokesperson of Nepal Police.

“Currently, we are taking him to the Kailali District Court for further action.”

It has been found that the court some 13 years ago convicted the lawmaker, Parshuram Chaudhary, and Bir Bahadur Chaudhary of setting a tractor on fire. Besides the jail sentence, they were ordered to pay Rs 875,000 in fines.

After one of the convicts, Bir Bahadur Chaudhary was arrested on Friday last week, it was found that lawmaker Chaudhary was also involved in the case.

Chaudhary was elected in the House of Representatives to represent Kailali 2 in the general elections held in November 2022.
