KANCHANPUR, March 19: A week after the Kanchanpur District Court issued a warrant against Dilli Bista and Angur GC, Bista, the then Superintendent of Police at District Police Office, Kanchanpur, has presented himself before the court.
Bista is one of the eight police personnel accused of destroying evidence of Nirmala Panta’s rape and murder on July 26, 2018. Registrar Hari Krishna Awasti at the Kanchanpur District Court confirmed Bista’s presence at the court and said that the court was recording his statement.
GC, however, is yet to present himself to the court.
On March 7, a case was lodged by the Office of District Attorney at Kanchanpur District Court against eight police officials for their alleged involvement in torture and evidence destruction in connection with Nirmala Panta's rape and murder case.
However, of the eight, only six, excluding Bista and GC, presented themselves at the court. Those who recorded the statement are DSP Gyan Bahadur Sethi, inspector Jagdish Bhatta, Ekendra Khadka, DSP Hari Singh Dhami, Ram Bahadur Thami and constable Chandani Saud, according to Hari Krishna Awasti, a registrar at the district court. The district court has already recorded the statement of six police officers on bail.
