KATHMANDU — The Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority on Thursday filed a corruption case against former UCPN-Maoist lawmaker Lharkyal Lama at the Special Court.
The anti-graft body has accused Lama for accumulating property worth Rs 298 million wrongfully by holding public posts over and over.
The Commission had investigated into property details of Lama from financial year 2001/2 to 2015/16.
The anti-corruption constitutional body said it found that his expenditure in last 15 years did not match with his earning, with a difference of the mentioned amount.
Among the property, he failed to furnish the sources for property worth Rs 92.4 million, CIAA said in a statement.
During the investigation, Lama had failed to show sources of his earning for the mentioned amount.
Earlier, in March, the Commission had found bullets in his bank locker while it was investigating into his involvement in embezzlement.
Lama, a permanent resident of Helambu-6 in Sindhupalchok district, was arrested in March by police after they discovered 14 projectiles in his bank locker.
A couple days after the fact, he was re-arrested on fraud charges related to foreign employment. He was later released by the Department of Foreign Employment on a bail bond of Rs 3 million.
