An investigation committee has been formed under the coordination of Superintendent of Police Devendra Bahadur Pal to investigate the incident of escape of a prisoner who was serving imprisonment in the Gulm Nakhkhu Jail of Nepal Police, Lalitpur.

31-year-old Bhola Budhathoki, who lives in Pilpung Rural Municipality-2 of Ramechhap and is currently in Nepal Police's Nakhkhu Prison, who is serving a prison term, escaped from the hospital on Wednesday when he was taken to a teaching hospital in Maharajganj for treatment. He was serving a 20-year prison sentence since 2072.
