SC order on preservation of Devghat


The Supreme Court on Wednesday issued a directive to the government and the Ministry of Culture Tourism and Civil Aviation to do the needful for the preservation of Devghat, an important religious spot.

A division bench of justices Bal Ram KC and Sharada Shrestha issued the order in response to a PIL filed by Acharya Narayan Prasad Timsina “Madhup” three years ago.

The bench directed the ministry to make the Devghat Development Committee capable of controlling mismanagement of the religious spot.
