Dolakha District Police Office arrested former chief of Water Source and Irrigation Development Division, Dolakha, Prakash Adhikari on the charge of faking government stamp and signatures yesterday.

Dolakha Police Chief DSP Man Bahadur Rai said Adhikari was arrested from Kathmandu for faking government stamp and signature. Adhikari was brought to Dolakha and is in police custody. Police have started an investigation. Earlier, Adhikari was nabbed for taking bribe from a service seeker in Sindhupalchowk. Then, he was suspended. The Special Court had freed him on bail after a corruption case was filed against him by the Commission for the Investigation Abuse of Authority.

After he was arrested, the anti-graft team had found fake stamp and documents with forged signatures. Since then, he was absconding. After the CIAA office Tangal carried out necessary investigation, it had written to Dolakha Police.
