The Supreme Court on Thursday issued an order, seeking original documents on the decision of awarding amnesty to Yograj Dhakal 'Regal' within October 11.

A single bench of Justice Manoj Kumar Sharma issued an order in this regard. "Entire documents that have the decisions dated September 20 to parole Regal by the President should be produced before the court by October 11 via Office of the Attorney General from the office that keeps it," Sharma stated in the order.

Similarly, Justice Sharma decided to slate the next hearing under full bench on October 12, reasoning that the case warranted smooth and prompt decision. It will be the case prerogative in the full bench on the slated date.

President Ramchandra Paudel had pardoned Regal upon the recommendation of the Council of Ministers on the occasion of the Constitution Day, Asoj 3.

Regal's release not only drew widespread criticism but also prompted the filing of a case against government decision by Bharati Manandhar Sherpa, the spouse of Chetan Manandhar, whom Regal had murdered in Banke.

Regal was serving a jail sentence after being convicted of murder by the court.

The Supreme Court issued the order following a preliminary hearing on the case earlier on Thursday.
