Verdict soon: Judge

CHITWAN: Chitwan District Court Chief Judge Kul Prasad Sharma said on Monday that the court would deliver its verdict soon in the Krishna Prasad Adhikari murder case. Speaking at an interaction here on Monday, the judge said, “The case is scheduled to be heard on August 5 and we’re busy collecting evidence.”

Sharma denied that that there had been any undue pressure concerning the case, the judge blamed the plaintiff for the delay in the settlement of the case.

“The court has issued summons for the plaintiff to appear in the court, but there is no trace of him, which is causing the delay in settling the case, but the court can’t afford to wait for him and will carry on with the process and issue the verdict,” the judge explained.
