Show cause on Fewa case


Pokhara Appellate Court on Wednesday issued show cause notices to the defendants in a writ petition filed for conservation of Fewa lake. The petition was filed on Tuesday against Kaski DDC, Pokhara sub-metropolitan city, Sarangkot, Pumdibhumdi and Chapakot VDCs bordering the lake.

Advocate Bishwo Ghimire filed the petition demanding issuance of a mandamus order stating that the authorities responsible for conservation of the lake have been slacking off in their job and this has led to shrinkage of the lake’s area.

Pokhara appellate court judge Mohan Prasad Ghimire gave the defendants a 15-day deadline to submit their written explanations.
