KATHMANDU: Police on Wednesday said three absconding murder suspects were nabbed recently after 12 years of the crime.

Residents of Bouddha, Shreebir Lama (31), Devraj Lama aka Sonu (31) and Rakesh Lama aka Kheppa (40) were arrested by a team deployed from the Central Investigation Bureau of Nepal Police on Friday, September 9.

They have already been presented before the District Court seeking remand, according to police.
