NBB case: CJ urged to form probe panel

Kathmandu, November 13:

Members of the Judicial Council (JC) have suggested Chief Justice Dilip Kumar Paudel form a panel to look into the controversial stay order issued by judge Keshav Prasad Mainali of the Patan Appellate Court against Nepal Rastra Bank.

A member of the Council told this daily that Chief Justice is yet to form a panel to investigate the Patan Appellate Court’s recently controversial stay order that barred Nepal Rastra Bank from intervening in the management of Nepal Bangladesh Bank Limited.

“We have suggested him to from a inquiry panel as per the Judicial Council Act 1990,” said a JC member.

Following the controversy stirred by the stay order, the NB Bank had withdrawn the case from the Patan Appellate Court and the Rastra Bank took over its management.
