KATHMANDU, June 14: The Supreme Court (SC) has turned down a writ petition filed at the apex court against the government’s decision to give amnesty to murder convict Bal Krishna Dhungel.

Supreme Court Co-Registrar Narayan Prasad Panthi quashed the writ petition saying that the case filed against amnesty for Dhungel is still sub judice.

President Bidya Devi Bhandari had given amnesty to 816 jail inmates including Dhungel on the occasion of Republic Day, on the recommendation of the cabinet.
