KATHMANDU, JULY 27: Bibeksheel Nepali Party on Wednesday demonstrated in front of Bhatbhateni with banners and pamphlets and shouting slogan "Get well soon Lokman."

The demonstration was staged as a satiric protest against the chief commissioner of the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA), Lokman Singh Karki, after he did not appear at the meeting of Good Governance and Monitoring Committee (GGMC) of Parliament held on Tuesday at Singha Durbar citing health problems.

The GGMC had invited Karki and other commissioners to discuss accusations that the CIAA had interfered in the Kathmandu University's MD/MS entrance examination against the principle of academic jurisdiction by holding the examinations on their own.

In a letter to the committee, Karki has said that he would not be able to attend the meeting due to throat infection and doctors have advised him not to speak for a week.

He has also mentioned in the letter that he is taking antibiotics.
