The Ministry of Culture, Tourism, and Civil Aviation have formed a committee to probe an issue relating to the Nepal-India Pashupati Maitri Dharamshala. Minister for Culture, Tourism, and Civil Aviation Prem Bahadur Ale directed for the formation of a five-member committee under the leadership of the treasurer of the Pashupati Area Development Trust (PADT), Narayan Prasad Subedi.

Member of the committee are the council members, Aasha Pandey, Bishwokaran Jayan and Devi Prasad Baral while the undersecretary (account) of the Ministry is member-secretary. The committee has been asked to submit the report to the committee within seven days.

The PADT has leased out the Dharamshala to one Aananda Pvt. Ltd. (Batas Group). The Group has been accused of running the dharmashala as a hotel and rampantly taking charges from religious tourists for using it.

The Youth Association on Friday submitted a memorandum to the Minister demanding investigations into the matter.

Receiving the memo, the Minister assured that all public structures and lands that that were encroached would be taken back. did we carry this
