Actor Paul Shah has been arrested on charges of sexual assault. Police arrested Shah after he appeared at the District Police Office, Tanahu today.

Deputy Superintendent of Police Yuvraj Khadka informed that Shah has been arrested. Shah was on the absconding list of the police after a complaint was lodged against him after allegations of sexually abusing a 17-year-old singer. The victim's family had lodged a complaint at the District Police Office on February 23. Shah had informed the police that he would surrender today.

The family of the victim has mentioned in the complaint that Shah had raped the victim on April 27, 2021. Similarly, it has been stated in the complaint that the victim was also raped in Pokhara on December 25, 2020, and in Chitwan on March 21, 2021.

Previously, the victim had filed the case in Kaski but the Police administration suggested that she should file it in Tanahu where the incident had taken place.

In the complaint, it has been demanded to take appropriate action against Shah for the offense under Article 219 (1) of the Criminal Code, 2017, and to give proper compensation to the victim as per Article 228 of the same code.
