MoS to probe issue separately

KATHMANDU: The newly appointed Supplies Minister Shiva Kumar Mandal said the ministry will independently probe land acquisition issue of Nepal Oil Corporation (NOC).

“Charges from lawmakers and reports in the media mean that there is some sort of irregularity involved in the land purchase. I vow to investigate it to its depth without compromising with any anomaly and person,” he stated.

The Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority has already started a probe into this issue by collecting all papers related to land procurement from NOC.
