Kathmandu, February 16
Kathmandu police have arrested a man on the charge of disturbing the public in the name of pranks in public places of the capital.
The action takes place weeks after the Ministry of Home Affairs warned people against making prank videos in public places.
Accordingly, the Nepal Police Cyber Bureau has arrested Akash Sedhain, who would operate the YouTube channel named Nepali Pranksters. A native of Jhapa, Sedhain lives in Bhaktapur these days.
SSP Nabinda Aryal, the chief of the bureau, says the Kathmandu District Court has remanded him in custody for seven days for further investigation.
He will be prosecuted as per the Electronic Transactions Act, 2006.
