Baskota files defamation case against agent who leaked audiotape

File: Gokul Baskota

Kathmandu, February 28

Gokul Baskota, who resigned as the minister for communications and information technology last week after an audiotape which supposedly contains his voice negotiating a commission for the security printing press establishment deal, has filed a defamation case against the person who leaked the audiotape.

Baskota says he filed the case against Bijaya Prakash Mishra, who leaked the tape claiming Baskota agreed to give the assignment to his company after assuring a commission, at the Kathmandu District Court on Friday.

Baskota, in his petition submitted to the court, has claimed that the accusation was false, hence it amounts to be a case of slander and defamation.
