Police interfere in lawyers’ protest in Supreme Court (With photos)
KATHMANDU: Police on Thursday intervened in a protest programme organised by the lawyers in the premises of Supreme Court.
The lawyers have been staging demonstrations for the past few weeks demanding resignation of Chief Justice Cholendra Shumsher JB Rana, who has been accused of seeking to appoint his brother-in-law as a minister in the Sher Bahadur Deuba-led government and delaying the hearing of cases filed against appointments to the constitutional bodies.
The area was gripped by tension for sometime after police tried to take the group of agitating lawyers under control.
Later, police tightened the security to prevent any untoward incident.
