A bench of district judge Dr. Rajendra Kumar Acharya delivered the verdict that Chauman Bahadur Gharti and Bhupendra Budhamagar would be behind the bar for seven years and fined Rs 200 thousand each. Both of them are from Gurvakot Municipality-9 of Surkhet.

Similarly, another accomplice- the hotel entrepreneur- has been handed down three and half years' imprisonment and a fine of Rs 100 thousand, according to an information officer at court, Ujjwal Dev Rawal.
