AIG Bishwo Raj Pokharel resigns
KATHMANDU : Additional Inspector General of Nepal Police(AIG) Bishwo Raj Pokharel resigned from his post on Monday.
He submitted his resignation letter to the Nepal Police Headquarters this afternoon.
Pokharel tendered his resignation after the Supreme Court upheld the government decision to appoint Dhiraj Pratap Singh as the Inspector General of Police (IGP).
Earlier on July 15, a joint bench of acting Chief Justice Deepak Kumar Karki and Justice Kumar Chudal had scrapped the writ petition filed by Pokharel.
Pokharel had filed the writ at the apex court saying that the government appointed Singh to the post of IGP by violating the seniority basis.
