Bishwakarma released on bail after being presented at court

Bhojpur, September 5

Netra Bikram Chand-led Communist Party of Nepal Spokesperson Khadga Bahadur Bishwakarma was released on bail after he was presented at District Court Bhojpur today.

The court’s Information Officer Maniram Pokhrel said that Bishwakarma was presented at the court in cases related to improvised explosive devices, arson and murder.

However, he was released later after posting Rs 60,000 in bail after a single bench of judge Harishchandra Ingnam gave an order to this effect.

The court sought Rs 25,000 bail for his involvement in exploding a device at Tyamkemayu Rural Municipality on November 14 last year.

Likewise, Rs 25,000 and Rs 10,000 were sought for exploding explosive devices at Shadananda Municipality and Salpasilichho Rural Municipality during an election publicity gathering of the communist alliance last year.

BK, who was in Nuwakot, was held on yesterday and brought to Kathmandu. He was airlifted to Biratnagar and was taken to Bhojpur via road last night.

Bishwakarma has been accused of exploding a bomb targeting Sherdhan Rai, who was the left alliance’s common candidate for Bhojpur province kha at Temkemaiyung Rural Municipality.

Rai’s personal security officer Assistant Sub-inspector Dilli Devkota had sustained injuries in the incident while Rai was safe. Rai is the present chief minister of the Province.
