KATHMANDU, June 5: Director General Chudamani Sharma who was arrested for his alleged involvement in graft charge has been moved to Thapathali-based Norvic Hospital after a preliminary treatment at Bir Hospital.
He has been kept at Emergency Ward. “He is suffering from high blood pressure. A team of doctors is examining him,” a source at Norvic Hospital told Republica Online. ‘We will determine the cause of his ailment after a thorough examination.’
Sharma was hospitalized at Bir Hospital following complaints of health problems.
Special Court on Sunday ordered the CIAA to keep him in the police custody for investigation for a week.
Sharma who was doing time in the police custody was rushed to Bir Hospital after he complained of feeling giddy.
Most of the graft-accused VVIPs prefer to stay at hospitals in order to escape police interrogation while doing time on remand.
On last Friday, CIAA had arrested Sharma from his office on the charge of misappropriating millions of rupees by misusing his authority.
With the checkered past, Sharma, who was in the process of getting promoted to the post of secretary, has been suspended following his arrest.
Despite dozens of graft cases filed against him, he reigned as General Director of Inland Revenue Department for four years.
