"Bhandari was arrested and taken into police custody for his alleged involvement in a dispute at Tutedobhan of Rorang rural municipality, Dhading on June 6 after a local resident Janak Magar filed a fraud case at the police station," he said.
"The police have arrested Bhandari even though he was not involved in the dispute," Basnet said.
Basnet claimed that the police are hatching conspiracy to murder Bhandari. "We will be forced to launch protest against the police administration to save the life of Bhandari," he said. Basnet also warned to stage a nation-wide protest if Bhandari is not set free.
