KATHMANDU, March 17: The Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) of Nepal Police has received the report of the High-Level Probe Commission on Gold Smuggling. The commission, chaired by former high court judge Dilli Raj Acharya, submitted its findings to the CIB on Sunday.

CIB chief, Additional Inspector General (AIG) Shyam Lal Gyawali, said that he received the report at the Ministry of Home Affairs on Sunday. AIG Gyawali said, “Following a thorough examination, we will initiate the necessary action process.”

Gyawali said that it is yet to be decided who will be prosecuted and who will be arrested. "As of now, apart from the details that surfaced in the media, we haven't received any official notifications. With the report now in our possession, we will conduct a thorough review and proceed accordingly," he said.

Earlier, the High-Level Probe Commission submitted the report to the Ministry of Home Affairs on March 14 with some important recommendations based on the statements of those involved in gold smuggling, on-site investigation, and technical analysis.

The government formed a 3-member commission in October 2023 under the leadership of former high court judge Dilli Raj Acharya. The commission has claimed to have prepared the report after conducting a detailed study on the 61 kg gold case and the smuggling of gold concealed in vape.
