KATHMANDU — Nepali Congress leader Kul Bahadur Gurung has filed a complaint at the TRC against illegal seizure of his properties by Maoist cadres in Danabari, Ilam.
“I have been fighting for law and order as the Supreme Court has also asked the government to make necessary arrangements to provide compensation to victims like us as well as to return the captured properties. But, my family members, including my brothers and sisters, are yet to get back our own properties,” said Gurung.
Gurung has also claimed that Maoist cadres destroyed his home and tea garden on January 13, 2005.
“My struggle for rule of law will continue and I have filed my complaint at TRC expecting justice,” he added.Follow @gorkhapost
2 Nepalis in Lhasa jail for smuggling gold
RASUWA — Two Nepali youths are reported to be in a jail in Lhasa of China, on the charge of their involvement in gold smuggling.
Gyal Dorje Tamang of Gosaikunda Rural Municipality-5 in Rasuwa and Bikash Waiba of Hakubesi of Aamachhodongmo Rural Municipality were detained in Chinese territory by the customs department informers of the Tibet government around a month ago as they were about to enter Nepal on a truck bearing the Nepali number plate.
The Chinese side confiscated nine pieces of precious yellow metal from the two, Rasuwa District Police Office quoted the Nepal Consulate General Office in Lhasa as saying.
According to Rasuwa DPO’s Inspector of Police Dhruba Silwal, further details regarding the case are awaited.
It may be noted that the Chinese side has already started implementing the proposal floated by the Nepali side during the past border-security meetings to increase its surveillance in such illegal affairs bearing in mind increasing smuggling of gold into Nepali territory via China, as Silwal said.Follow @gorkhapost
