KATHMANDU, March 10: The cases against Prime Minister and CPN (Maoist Center) Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal will be heard at the Supreme Court today. The hearing on the petitions that was adjourned on Thursday has been scheduled for today.

PM Dahal, while speaking at a public function in Kathmandu on January 15, 2020, had said that he would take the responsibility for the 5,000 people who were killed by CPN (Maoist) during the conflict.

On March 7, 26 people, including Gyanendraraj Aran and Kalyan Budhathoki, registered two writ petitions against PM Dahal.

Earlier, the SC administration had ordered a Darpeeth (decision not to register) stating that the application submitted on the basis of expression of political nature could not be registered. After the petitioners went to the SC against the administration order, the bench of Justice Ishwar Prasad Khatiwada and Hari Phuyal ordered the registration of the petition.
