JANAKPURDHAM, May 27: Kailash Sirohiya, the chairman of Kantipur Media Group (KMG), currently in the custody of Dhanusha police over a citizenship-related offense, is scheduled to be presented before the Dhanusha District Court for the third time today.

Last Friday, the bench of District Judge Romakant Gyawali granted the police an additional three days to continue their investigation into Sirohiya. Dhanusha Police Spokesperson DSP Ranjan Awa informed Republica that with the second extension period expiring today, Sirohiya will be brought before the court for a third extension.

Earlier on Wednesday, a single bench of Judge Churamani Khadka at the Dhanusha District Court allowed Sirohiya to be detained for three days. The judicial remand was extended by another three days on Friday.

DSP Awale stated that the investigation is still ongoing, necessitating a third court extension for Sirohiya's detention.

Previously, senior advocates Shambhu Thapa, Raman Shrestha, Sher Bahadur KC, Gobind Sharma Bandi, and Tikaram Bhattarai, along with advocates Raman Kumar Karna, Kishor Paudel, and Dipendra Jha, argued on behalf of Sirohiya.

Sirohiya was arrested from the Kantipur head office in Thapathali last Tuesday and brought to Dhanusha on Wednesday morning.
