The anti-corruption body filed charge-sheet against Shrestha, along with three other staffers of BPKIHS — Rupa Singanchi Agrawal, finance administration head, and senior clerks Chandra Kumar Magar and Ramesh Kumar Khatiwada — for their involvement in issuing a cheque in the name of Jeevan Poudel without maintaining its record.
