Lawmaker Sah remanded to four day custody

RJPN lawmaker Pramod Shah

KATHMANDU, Oct 16: The Dhanusha District Court has remanded Rastriya Janata Party Nepal (RJPN) lawmaker Pramod Sah to four-day custody on Wednesday for further investigation.

Sah was arrested on Thursday from Tribhuvan International Airport VVIP lounge on the charge of vandalizing Buddha Air office at the Janakpur Airport a day before after the flight was delayed for two hours.

Meanwhile, the RJPN cadres have staged protests against Sah’s arrest in Janakpur and Birjung. They have demanded Sah be released immediately.

Earlier on Tuesday, RJPN Presidium member Rajendra Mahato expressed objection over Sah’s arrest saying the government was heading toward totalitarianism.
