Kathmandu, December 31:
The committee formed to investigate whether Inspector Madan KCâ€™s pistol was looted or stolen from his house would seek departmental action against the inspector.
The four-member committee constituted under the coordination of Deputy Inspector General of Police, Bijayraj Bhatta, has found that the pistol was stolen from KCâ€™s house a few days before KC reported that it had been looted.
â€œIf KC had not lied to the office, the robbery at Nabil bank at Kantipath, by Niranjan KC, the brother-in-law of KC, could have be avoided,â€ the committee has stated in its report.
The report states that KCâ€™s intention was found to be malafide.
Inspector Madan KC had told a fabricated story about how his pistol was looted at Bishnumati bridge in Balaju by a group of five armed persons on December 15, the report stated.
The team is scheduled to submit its report on Monday.
â€œThe report has been completed,â€ the committee sources told The Himalayan Times today.
The team was formed after Niranjan Khanal, who robbed the Nabil Bank with the inspectorâ€™s pistol, told the police that he had stolen the pistol from KCâ€™s house a few days before he robbed the bank. Khanal was caught by the army at Kupandol on December 22.
