Supreme Court orders Dr KC arrested on criminal contempt charge

Kathmandu, January 8

Nepal’s Supreme Court has ordered police to arrest activist Dr Govinda KC on charge of criminal contempt of court.

The order comes a few hours after Dr KC, enraged by the Supreme Court’s order to reinstate Dr Shashi Sharma as the Dean of Tribhuvan University Institute of Medicine, accused Chief Justice Gopal Parajuli of being corrupt.

A bench of Justice Damber Bahadur Sahi issued the order on Monday evening demanding that KC be brought before the court at 9 am on Tuesday.

Dr KC, who has been advocating for reforms in medical education, announced his 14th hunger strike earlier on Monday.
