Kathmandu, May 20
Chief of the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority, Navin Kumar Ghimire, says the anti-corruption constitutional body is looking into multiple land encroachment cases recently surfaced including those related to Lalita Niwas in Baluwatar of Kathmandu and Jumla of Karnali.
Speaking at a function organised in Hetaunda of Makawanpur district on Sunday, Ghimire claimed the Commission had accorded high priority to such issues.
“The Commission has already started investigations into cases of Lalita Niwas and 590 ropani land in Guthichaur of Jumla,” he said, “No any person involved in these cases will be left free.”
Ghimire also informed that the number of complaints regarding land encroachment cases was on the rise recently and many of these cases were from the Terai region.
In another context, the official warned that the Commission would take action against office chiefs if any staffer under them were found to be receiving kickback form the service seekers.
