Sobhraj case

KATHMANDU: The Supreme Court may decide the fate of Charles Gurumukh Sobhraj on Sunday. Sobhraj’s case has been under the jurisdiction of the SC for the last seven months. After the prosecution lawyers submitted their final arguments before a division bench of Justices Min Bahadur Rayamajhi and Kalyan Shrestha on Sunday, the SC has told the defence lawyers to submit their final arguments next Sunday. Sobhraj had appealed against lower court verdicts that convicted him of killing American national Connie Jo Bronzich. — HNS
