KATHMANDU, Feb 6: An unidentified gang has vandalized suspended Director General of Inland Revenue Department Chudamani Sharma’s house based in Budhanilkantha on Sunday.
DIG Manoj Neupane, spokesperson of Nepal Police Headquarters said they are carrying out investigation into the vandalism and have arrested some suspects in connection with the case.
The incident has taken place at a time when the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) is preparing to file another corruption case against Chudamani Sharma.
In mid-July last year, CIAA had filed a corruption case against Sharma and two other officials of the Tax Settlement Commission including the commission's chief Lumbadhwaj Mahat and member Umesh Prasad Dhakal accusing them of embezzling Rs 10.02 billion while settling taxes of 45 companies.
