2022 May 27, 7:55, Kathmandu

The then Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of the Armed Police Force (APF) who has been in jail for murdering his wife has been sentenced to life imprisonment. The Supreme Court (SC) issued a verdict to sentence him to 20-year jail term for the crime he committed.

A divisional bench of Acting Chief Justice Deepak Kumar Karki and Justices Tanka Bahadur Moktan and Dr Kumar Chudal today issued the verdict upholding the decision of District Court Kathmandu and High Court Patan on the murder case.

The divisional bench sentenced Koirala to life imprisonment reversing the verdict of the earlier bench comprising suspended Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher JB Rana and Justice Tej Bahadur KC on the case.

The Rana-KC bench had issued an order to reduce the 20-year jail term to 8.5 years on the spouse murder case.
