Suspended cops back

Kathmandu: Four senior Nepal Police officials, including its chief, who were suspended by the government for “their suspicious role” during Jana Andolan II, on Friday joined their service by signing on the attendence book at the Ministry of Home Affairs. The government, on May 12, had suspended Inspector General of Nepal Police Shyam Bhakta Thapa, AIGPs Rajendra Bahadur Singh, Rup Sagar Moktan and Krishna Basnet. Senior officials of the Armed Police Force, who were suspended on the same charges, are yet to join duties because their suspension duration has not ended. The tenure of Chief of the National Investigation Department Devi Ram Sharma ended while he was still suspended.— HNS
