Pudasini suicide case: Police submit investigation file to govt attorneys

Kathmandu, August 25

Police officials investigating the death of journalist Salikram Pudasaini have submitted their report to the Chitwan District Attorney’s Office

Police are investigating the alleged involvement of TV presenter Rabi Lamichhane and his associate Yuvraj Kandel and nurse Asmita Karti in encouraging Pudasaini to allegedly commit suicide.  Lamichhane, Pudasaini’s former boss, was arrested by Chitwan Police along with Kandel and Karki on August 15.

The attorneys will now discuss if the trio still needs to be kept in jail or they can post bail. The trio was arrested after police found a video shot by Pudasini before he committed suicide. In the video, Pudasini blames Lamichhane, Kandel, and Karki for his death.

The trio says that it was framed in the incident. Lamichhane’s supporters, since his arrest, have been protesting demanding his release. They are saying that Lamichhane was framed and that he is innocent.
