Nepal to blacklist Indian couple for Everest summit manipulation

KATHMANDU — The Department of Tourism under the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation has started a procedure to blacklist the Indian police couple from visiting Nepal for mountaineering for at least 10 years and cancel their Everest summit certificates, an official said on Monday.

Division of Tourism boss Sudarshan Dhakal said that authorities are looking into the Everest climb made by Dinesh Rathod and his better half Tarakeshwari in May and preparing to blacklist them.

The DoT prescribed the MoCTCA to take a formal decision to impose a 10-year ban on Dinesh and Tarkeshwari of Maharashtra from going by Nepal for mountaineering expedition by cancelling the summit certificates that the couple obtained from the Government of Nepal by submitting faked photos on June 10, said Dhakal.

The duo issued climber’s certificates from the Nepal government after they presented a photograph of themselves on the 8,850-meter (29,035-foot) summit.

Fellow climbers had blamed the couple that they never reached the summit and used someone else’s photographs to get their climbing certificates.

After receiving a written clarification from Makalu Adventure Treks today, the DoT concluded that the couple had obtained summit certificates from the DoT by submitting modified photos of their summit attempts to the top of Mt Everest.

Indian climber, Satyarup Sidhantha from Bangalore, said it was his photograph that the couple altered to make it appear they were on the summit.

The couple, who are both police officers from Pune in Indian state of Maharastra, had also claimed they were the first Indian couple to scale Everest.
