Commission seeks 15 days more to probe into cases of gold smuggling

2024 Feb 26, 19:06,

The High-Level Probe Commission formed to investigate the recent cases of gold smuggling has asked the government to give 15 more days to submit its report citing lack of time.

The Commission has requested the government through the Ministry of Home Affairs seeking 15 days to prepare and submit the report by March 13.

Commission's Chairman Dilliraj Acharya said that the job of report writing is delayed as details and responses from some agencies are awaited while additional evidences and facts received from the Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) of Nepal Police were yet to be studied and analyzed.

Acharya argued that this period of the Commission should be construed as a silence period since the Commission was working on study and analysis of the evidences and report writing.

The government had formed the Commission on October 1 giving three-month-long period. Later, the commission was given two more months as it could not complete its tasks.

Kishor Jung Karki, Prem Raj Joshi and former Additional Inspector General (AIG) Sahakul Thapa are the members of the commission led by former High Court Judge Acharya.
