KATHMANDU — The Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) on Thursday asked the government to attach property owned by Jagadamba Databya Aushadhalaya and Madan Dhara Samiti across the country.
The CIAA said in a statement that it had written to the government on May 29 to take necessary action against Kanak Mani Dixit and Kunda Dixit for ‘concealing’ 17 ropanis and 13 ana land that was above the ceiling.
According to the CIAA, the late Jagadamba Kumari Rana had given 40,000 company (Indian currency) to her secretary Kamal Mani Dixit through a deed signed on July 18, 1958, in order to establish Jagadamba Databya Aushadhalaya and asked to buy land worth 35,000 company, build a house with a budget of 4,000 company and buy furniture worth 1,000 company in order to run the office.
As per the wish of Jagadamba, Dixit had established a dispensary in Athrai Sankranti of Terhathum district, the anti-graft body said.
Dixit then bought 48 bigha, 12 kattha and 8 dhur land in Dulari VDC of Morang in the name of Aushadhalaya. Kamal Mani Dixit also bought 53 ropani, 13 ana and 3 paisa land in Nidhuradhin VDC of Taplejung district, according to the CIAA.
The CIAA said Jagadamba Databya Aushadhalaya, a charitable and social organisation, was changed to a company on April 17, 2014, at the initiative of Kamal Mani Dixit and this change of status was against the spirit and objective of Jagadamba.
Another organisation, named Madan Dhara Samiti, was also formed at the initiative of Kamal Mani Dixit and 7 bigha 12 dhur land was bought at Dulari VDC of Morang district in the name of the Samiti.
The Samiti was also registered as company on February 12, 2014, and the company’s documents stated that the land registered in the name of company could be sold.
The CIAA has also decided to write to the government requesting it to attach the land registered in the name of Samiti as well.Follow @gorkhapost
