Contempt of court case filed against Dr Govinda KC

KATHMANDU: A contempt of court case has been filed against Dr Govinda KC, soon after the senior orthopaedic surgeon announced his 14th hunger-strike on Monday demanding resignation of Chief Justice Gopal Parajuli.

Spokesperson for the Supreme Court (SC) Narayan Prasad Panthi said that a case has been filed against Dr KC for making contemptuous remarks against the Supreme Court.

A single bench of Justice Dambar Bahadur Shahi directed the police to present KC at the court after SC section officer Netra Bandhu Poudel lodged a contempt of court case against Dr KC.

Dr KC will be presented at the court on Tuesday morning, according to Panthi.

KC is staging the hunger-strike accusing Chief Justice of corrupt activities including maintaining ties with medical mafia.
