Fugitives nabbed

Kathmandu, June 6

The Central Investigation Bureau of Nepal Police has arrested fugitives, including a person convicted of forgery.

According to Central Investigation Bureau, Bhim Bahadur Rai, 55, of Kathmandu was arrested from New Road.

The Kathmandu District Court on January 17, 2012 had sentenced him to two years in prison, along with a fine of Rs 3.75 million in connection with forgery of government seals and signature.

Rai was a non-gazetted first class officer of Kalanki-based Land Revenue Office when he forged a land ownership certificate for personal gains, said CIB.

Rai has been sent to Central Jail, Sundhara for implementation of the court verdict. Separately, Kami Tamang, 40, of Nuwakot was nabbed from Gupteshwor-1 of the district yesterday.

Tamang was at large for the past 17 years after police launched a manhunt to nab him on the charge of killing Chhewang Tamang in Ghyangphedi, Nuwakot, on January 29, 2011.

Tamang had allegedly hacked the victim to death. CIB said he was sent to the Nuwakot District Court through the concerned district police office to proceed with further investigation into the incident.
