Police HQ quizzes DIG Thapa over slapping charges

  

HIMALAYAN NEWS SERVICE

KATHMANDU: Nepal Police Headquarters today sought explanations from DIG Parbati Thapa in the wake of reports that she had slapped head constable Bina Darai for manually searching her luggage while she was waiting to board a flight to Nepalgunj from Kathmandu.

A source informed that Thapa, chief of the Far-Western Regional Police Office, was told to clarify what actually happened at the airport yesterday.

Thapa denied slapping head constable Darai, though a source at the Tribhuvan International Airport said Thapa had slapped the head constable just because she dared to manually search her the luggage of Thapa, who was in civvies, as the x-ray machine had broken down.

“I introduced myself as a DIG of Nepal Police and told her to carry out a quick search as I was in a hurry to board the flight. I warned her that I will complain her boss about her indiscipline, but I did not slap her,” Thapa said, adding that she had briefed officials at the police headquarters about the reality. She said she was asked for verbal explanation.

Earlier, spokesperson for Nepal Police, DIG Binod Singh, said there was no evidence to prove that the incident had indeed occurred as the victim had not registered an FIR.

DIG Singh said, “If the incident had really occurred, the victim would have lodged an FIR. We have not received any complaint, so we cannot investigate the matter,” he informed.

it is a disgrace all these rich people n their arrogance..maybe we should stand up in numbers to these idiots bisnow bista, ktm

We trust you DIG Parbati Thapa. You have done a lot of good things for Nepalese women. You had helped open Women Cell dedicated to serve women inside and outside of police force. We respect you. Meena, Nepal

Can I put it this way, DIG Singh said, “If the incident had really occurred, the victim would have lodged an FIR. We have not received any complaint, so we cannot investigate the matter,” If somebody kills DIG Singh, and nobody lodged an FIR does that mean the incident didn't occur? If no body register an FIR then the police wont investigate? Shame on Binod Singh.... Karki Bilam, Tokyo Japan
