KATHMANDU, Jan 28 : The Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) of Nepal Police has arrested singer Prakash Ojha, who was earlier convicted of human trafficking, on Friday from the capital.

Acting on a tip-off that Ojha was hiding in Shankhamul area and was involved in recording music videos, a special squad of Nepal Police nabbed him from the Shankhamul area. Ojha, who originally hails from Itahari Municipality-4, Sunsari, has been sent to the central jail.

Reversing the Appellate Court-Morang’s decision, the Supreme Court on January 17 had sentenced Ohja to 10 years in jail on the charge of human trafficking. Ojha, once a popular comedian and singer of ‘Baule Bihe Gardenan Pohorpani, Bhatkaidinchuu Bakhrako Khorpani,’ had lured three minor girls into having sexual relationship with him for two years.

He had also recorded videos of the sexual acts with the minors and posted them online with the intention to sell the videos. According to the complaints by the victims, he would coerce them into having sex with him time and again by threatening to make public their sex videos.
