Corruption in Nepal's key constitutional bodies including the anti-graft bodies like CIAA is rampant, recent media reports show. Officials working there including commissioners are often accused of bribery and misconduct by abusing their authorities.
Earlier, CIAA commissioner Raj Narayan Pathak had resigned from his position after he was accused of being involved in a bribe case.
