Bijay Kumar Gachhadar released on Rs 1 million bail

Nepali Congress Vice President Bijay Kumar Gachhadar has been released on bail in the Baluwatar land case.

He was released submitting Rs. 1 million (10 Lakh) bail in a special court on Wednesday, said spokesperson Pushparaj Pandey. The Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority had filed a corruption case against Gachhadar in a special court on the charge of registering the land of Lalita’s residence in the name of a person.

He had been absconding for a long time and appeared in a special court on Wednesday. A bench of special court chairman Prem Raj Karki, members Abdul Aziz Musalman and Nityananda Pandey ordered Gachhadar’s release on Rs 1 million bail.

What was the allegation of the CIAA?

Gachhadar is accused of corruption when he was the Minister of Physical Planning and Works in 2066 BS. He is accused of corruption worth Rs 96.5 million (9 crores 65 lakh).

In proposal No. 3 of the meeting of the Council of Ministers on July 13, 2009 (2066/10/29 BS), the issue was the expansion of the Prime Minister’s residence and the management of the tenant. The proposal was prepared by the Secretary at the Ministry of Physical Planning and Works Deep Basnet and was approved by Gachhadar, who is also the Deputy Prime Minister.

The CIA has accused him and others of sending proposals to the cabinet. It was decided by the Council of Ministers to give the land of Samarjung Company, Rajkulo, and the road.

Gachhadar was accused of including the details of a fake tenant and sending a proposal to the Council of Ministers that did not match the jurisdiction. The CIAA has questioned Gachhadar as to why the issue of ‘lack of jurisdiction’ was taken to the Council of Ministers.

The Ministry of Physical Resources has jurisdiction to look into matters related to the expansion of the Prime Minister’s residence. However, at that time, the Ministry of Land Reforms had jurisdiction over public and private lands, tenant, and their rights.

Therefore, the authorities have accused him of violating the jurisdiction. The cabinet meeting on July 13, 2009 (2066/10/29 BS) had decided to expand the area of ​​the Prime Minister’s residence in Baluwatar.
