Those promoted are DIG Bishworaj Shahi, Yadav Adhikari, Parshuram Khatri and Sushilwar Singh Thapa and they had retired one and a half year back.
The Supreme Court on September 24, 2014, a a week earlier to their retirement, had ordered the government to promote them to the post of AIG.
Though the SC order was challenged by the government, on December 18, 2015, Chief Justice Kalyan Shrestha had upheld the apex court’s earlier decision and quashed the government’s review petition.
Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA) was yet to comply with the Supreme Court directive, which had come in response to a writ petition filed by the four DIGs.
