KATHMANDU, Oct 6: The Supreme Court (SC) staffers have reached Baneshwor Height again to serve the court’s notice on Lokman Singh Karki, Chief Commissioner of the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA), for the second time on Thursday.
A team from the SC had returned without delivering the notice yesterday after the Secretary of Kathmandu Metropolitan City-10 did not show up. The SC staffers had reached Karki’s residence in Baneshwar Height on Wednesday afternoon.
As per the legal provision the court staffers can paste such notices at defendants’ address only in the presence of secretary of the village development committee or the secretary of ward office in municipalities.
The attempt by court staffers to paste the notice to Karki’s house failed as Sita Rai, the secretary of ward number 10 of Kathmandu Metropolitan City, did not show up.
The SC has scheduled the hearing on the writ petition right after the Dashain festival.
The SC on September 17 had decided to review its previous verdict on a writ petition challenging Karki’s appointment as the CIAA chief.
