 A joint bench of Justice Sushmalatha Mathema heard the case today, said Devendra Dhakal, co-spokesperson of the court. Additional Inspector General of Police (AIG) Bishwaraj Pokharel had filed a writ petition in the Supreme Court on May 2 against the decision of the Council of Ministers to appoint Inspector General of Police Dhiraj Pratap Singh.

 A writ petition filed by Additional Inspector General of Nepal Police Pokharel has demanded to overturn the government's decision to promote someone one and a half years younger than him. A meeting of the Council of Ministers held on May 2  had decided to promote Singh to the post of Inspector General of Police.
