KATHMANDU — DIG Navaraj Silwal has resigned from Nepal Police after the Supreme Court quashed his writ petition filed against IGP appointment on Tuesday.

Issuing a press statement Tuesday evening just few hours after the Supreme Court quashed the writ petition challenging the appointment of Prakash Aryal to the post of Inspector General of Police (IGP), Silwal announced his resignation from the post.

Silwal said he reached to this decision after the apex court annulled his writ and approved DIG Praksah Aryal promotion to the Inspector General of Nepal Police.

“It was a long battle for justice to professional right,” Silwal said in the statement.

An extended full bench of SC justices including Chief Justice Gopal Parajuli,Justices Om Prakash Mishra, Kedar Prasad Chalise, Sharda Prasad Ghimire, Mira Khadka, Prakashman Singh Raut and Purospottam Bhandari made the decision.

a day after the government elevated Aryal to the post of IGP, DIG Silwal had filed the writ petition at the court arguing that there “have been irregularities during the review of the files on work performance of four DIGs” who were contending for the IG post.

DIG Silwal had moved the court for the second time challenging the government decision to promote DIG Prakash Aryal to the top post of Nepal police.

He had claimed that the review panel deducted two points from his score sheet to promote Aryal to the post of IGP.

DIG Silwal had earlier knocked the apex court’s door on February 12 after the government decided to promote DIG Jaya Bahadur Chand as the new IG.

The Supreme Court on March 21 quashed the government decision to appoint Chand as the chief of Nepali Police and instructed the government to take into account seniority, merit and performance while promoting officials.
