The Patan High Court has completed the hearing of the appeal petition of the accused in pretrial detention in a fake Bhutanese refugee case.

The bench of Justices Prakash Kharel and Janak Pandey completed the hearing on Thursday. According to an official of the High Court, the decision will be announced on Friday.

Nepali Congress leader Bal Krishna Khand, UML leader Top Bahadur Rayamajhi, Indrajit Rai, and former home secretary Tek Narayan Pandey, who were arrested on charges of being involved in the fraud business of sending Nepali citizens to the United States as fake Bhutanese refugees, were sent to prison pending trial by the Kathmandu District Court.

They appealed to the High Court that the order of the District Court sending them to pretrial detention was flawed.
