KATHMANDU, Sept 3: Following an interim order issued by the Supreme Court on August 30, the sealed outlets of Bajeko Sekuwa will now come into operation.
A single bench of Justice Sapana Pradhan Malla had issued an interim order and issued show cause notice to the government in a writ petition filed by Nitima Bhandar Karki, wife of Chetan Bhandari, one of the accused in 33 kg gold smuggling.
The interim order stated that the government’s decision to close all of its outlets had brought loss to the company and affected livelihood of those employed.
The eatery was locked down after Chetnath Bhandari, the restaurant's owner was dragged into the 33 kg gold smuggling. A special investigation committee formed by the Ministry of Home Affairs had then locked the restaurant outlets.
