Interim order rejected in IGP promotion writ

2022 May 06, 7:36, Kathmandu

The Supreme Court has refused to issue an interim order in the preliminary hearing over a writ petition filed against the promotion of Inspector General (IG) of Nepal Police.

A single bench of Justice Susmalatha Mathema on Thursday refused to issue an interim order as demanded by the writ petitioner, AIG Biswa Raj Pokharel. The court will hold the final hearing over the case on May 31.

In the order, the apex court has also sought a written response on their respective behalf from both the parties to the case.

The hearing in the dispute began on Wednesday and was adjourned due to a lack of time to be held again today.

Additionally, Inspector General (AIG) of Nepal Police Bishwaraj Pokharel had filed a writ petition in the apex court on May 2 against the decision of the Council of Ministers to appoint Dhiraj Pratap Singh as the new IG of Nepal Police.

In the petition, Pokharel had demanded to overturn the government's decision to promote his younger colleague to the coveted post of Nepal Police Organization. A meeting of the Council of Ministers held on May 1 had decided to promote Singh to the post of Inspector General of Nepal Police.
