Owner of the Bajeko Sekuwa, Bhandari, who has been at large for several weeks, is said to be a relative of Chudamani Upreti aka Gorey — the main accused in the 33-kilogram gold smuggling case. Bhandari is being tried at the Morang District Court for his alleged connection with Gore.

The government had filed a case against Bhandari as a fugitive defendant in the gold racket case at the Morang District Court.

Home Ministry officials said one of the six sealed outlets is owned by Bhandari’s brother-in-law. The government, suspecting Bhandari’s involvement in the gold smuggling racket, had earlier suspended all his bank accounts and withheld properties registered under his name.
