Kathmandu, August 29

A case of contempt of court has been filed against Kathmandu Mayor Balen Shah over his comment in response to a previous order of the Supreme Court.

The apex court registered the contempt of court case against Shah on Monday.

Advocate Deepak Raj Joshi filed the case claiming Shah’s comment after the interim order issued by Justice Hari Krishna Karki.

As the metropolitan city was planning to demolish a part of the Norvic Hospital building after finding it illegally built, the court had stopped that. Following that, Shah, in protest, said the duty of approving building blueprints should be handed over to the court.

Meanwhile, hearing the case, the court ordered Shah to present his response in the next seven days.
