KATHMANDU — Nepal Police have arrested the main culprit in a case dating back to 1995. The Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) has arrested criminal Tashi Gurung for killing an Italian man, Carraro David, in Thamel 20 years after the crime.

Tashi Gurung of Nawal VDC, Manang, and others had allegedly thrashed and wounded David Carraro (21) to death in Reggae Pub on October 30, 1995, when he tried to oppose them from eve-teasing and sexually bothering two of his women friends. He succumbed to multiple injuries at Bir Hospital.

Eight other suspects are still on the loose, according to police.  Some of them are said to be living in different nations and the CIB is attempting to find their whereabouts with assistance from Interpol.

According to police, 13 men led by Tashi Gurung had assaulted and killed David at the Thamel-based Reggae Pub following a dispute after they harassed his two friends Antenola Kesraini and Lara Skibina on October 13, 1995.

Tashi’s arrest could lead to the arrest of others, said SSP Manoj Neupane. Tashi was held from room number 302 of Hotel Courtyard, Thamel, on Friday and was paraded at a press meet today.

Police had captured Gurung a week ago from Kathmandu. Tashi had been hiding in various places in Nepal and India, according to police. He left for the United States in 1997 after his father bought a passport (No 2961550) with a US visa from one Sandup Ghale for Rs400,000.

The citizenship certificate (No. 16312) was found to have been originally issued in the name of Bimala Devi Pokharel of Chhoprak, Gorkha.
