KATHMANDU: After the Special Court sought 20 billion bail from Parshuram Basnet the Special Court on Wednesday sought bail amount of Rs 10 million from Milan Gurung alias Chakre on charge of money laundering.
The don, who is doing his time in the central jail, was presented before the court today. The court also set a bail amount of Rs 200,000 for his wife Indira Ghale Gurung. However his wife was released on general bail.
A three-member division bench of Special Court Chairman Kedar Prasad Chalise and Bhupendra Bahadur Rai and Mohan Raman Bhattarai had slapped the bail amount.
The Department of Money Laundering Investigation had filed cases against five notorious dons including Gurung on the charges of running criminal rackets across the country and amassing wealth through illegal means.
Gurung is charged with accumulating assets to the tune of Rs 78 million through criminal activities. Ganesh Lama, Deepak Manange and Abishek Giri are other gangsters who are yet to appear the court.
Meanwhile, the Youth Federation Nepal (YFN), the youth wing of CPN-UML, has said that it would take an initiative to collect money to bail out its jailed central committee (CC) member Parshuram Basnet.
The Special Court Monday sent Basnet to prison after he could not deposit a bail amount of Rs 20 million. In a press statement issued today on completion of its CC meeting, the YFN has also described the charge leveled against Basnet as being ´vindictive´. In the statement, the YFN has listed out its decisions, including its future programs of protest, taken during its two-day gathering.
It also said the UML youth wing will collaborate with eight different youth bodies of various political parties, government and non-government youth organizations to chalk out a joint program of protests focusing on the upcoming Constituent Assembly elections.
