Kathmandu, August 12
Another government employee who was facing a corruption case at the Special Court reportedly committed suicide on Saturday night.
Nayab subba Hari Prasad Acharya was one among seven persons indicted by the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority in connection with a case in which the Land Revenue Office in Kalanki registered a public land in a person’s name. After the CIAA registered the case on May 17, he had resigned from the position.
Police say Acharya killed himself in Udayapur district of eastern Nepal on Saturday. “We have been reported that he was missing since the previous day immediately after he came to the district. We had launched a search mission on the basis of that,” DSP Hari Krishna KC of the Udayapur District Police Office says.
Police had found his body handing to a tree in Shikharkhuttle forest, around one kilometre away from his house. There was a two-page suicide note in his pocket.
This is the third case of such kind reported in the past month. In the third week of July, former joint secretary Ram Bahadur Pandeyhad killed himself in Kathmandu. A few days later, nayab subba Yukta Prasad Shrestha had also committed suicide in the capital.
