KATHMANDU, Jan 22: The Nepal Police has issued a diffusion notice to Nawaraj Silwal, former Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Nepal Police.
Diffusion notice is used to request the arrest or location of an individual or additional information in relation to a police investigation. A diffusion is circulated directly by National Central Bureaus to the member countries of their choice, or to the entire INTERPOL membership and is simultaneously recorded in INTERPOL’s Information System.
On January 2, the Kathmandu Metropolitan Police Office had issued an arrest warrant against Silwal to investigate in a case involving document forgery.
Giving its verdict on the case of forged documents, the Supreme Court (SC) had ordered the government to initiate action against Silwal concluding that the performance appraisal reports he had submitted to the apex court seeking his appointment as the chief of Nepal Police were forged. DIG Nawaraj Silwal was accused of submitting doctored performance appraisal certificates to the apex court along with his writ petition.
