Kathmandu, May 15

Police in Kathmandu have arrested the CPN-UML’s suspended secretary and lawmaker Top Bahadur Rayamajhi over the recently surfaced fake Bhutanese refugee scam.

A senior official says the special bureau under the Nepal Police headquarters arrested him in the Budhanilakantha area of northern Kathmandu.

The arrest has been possible 11 days after the police received a warrant to arrest the former deputy prime minister and his son, Sandeep. Sandeep was arrested in Butwal on the same day, but Top Bahadur managed to run away.

Sources say he came to Kathmandu just on Saturday.

For his alleged involvement in the same case, Bal Krishna Khand, another former minister and a powerful leader of the ruling coalition party Nepali Congress, is already arrested.
