KATHMANDU: Brother of slain gangster Dinesh Adhikari alias Chari moved the Supreme Court on Friday, seeking its order to Nepal Police to register an FIR to investigate, prosecute and punish the killer(s).
Ten days after the murder of the gangster, his brother Dhruba Adhikari filed the petition on Friday, demanding the order. He has stated in the petition that he had approached the Metropolitan Police Range, Hanumandhoka, demanding investigation into the incident and prosecution of the guilty but police refused to register his FIR.
Claiming that police refused to perform its duty as per the State Cases Act, 1992, the petitioner has sought an apex court order to immediately register the petition and do whatever is required. The Metropolitan Police Range, Hanumandhoka, Office of the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Ranipokhari, and District Administration Office have been made defendants in the petition.
Saying that Chari was a social worker, political cadre and construction entrepreneur, the petitioner has claimed that his brother was killed as part of a conspiracy hatched by Arpan Koirala in cahoots with Inspector Kumud Dhungel, ‘as Arpan had already told Chari’s fiancée Khusbu Oli that he would not hesitate to spend Rs 5 million to Rs 10 million to kill Chari’.
“The crime was committed by eight-nine police personnel under the command of DSP Meera Chaudhari and Inspector Kumud Dhungel as per the order of Crime Investigation Division Chief Pushkar Karki,” the petition stated. Police on August 6 killed Chari ‘in a gunfight’ at Bhimdhunga, on the outskirts of the capital.
Dhruba also claimed that Chari had been already killed somewhere else and that a drama was staged at Bhimdhunga to give the impression that he was killed in an encounter.
He has stated that he had produced the FIR identifying five names — DSP Meera Chaudhari, Inspector Kumud Dhungel, Khusbu’s ex-boyfriend Arpan Koirala, Crime Investigation Division Chief Pushkar Karki and SSP Uttam Karki — but police refused to register it which had ‘caused injustice to me’.
Adhikari said the police has to register an FIR if anyone brings it to them as per Section 3 of State Cases Act.
