Court extends remand of Sandeep Lamichhane by five days

KATHMANDU: The Kathmandu District Court on Thursday extended the remand of former Nepal national cricket team skipper Sandeep Lamichhane, who was arrested on the rape charge, by five days.

Metropolitan Police Range, Kathmandu spokesperson Dinesh Mainali said that the court has extended the remand by five days to carry out investigation.

Earlier on October 10, the Kathmandu District Court had allowed police to keep Nepal’s cricket sensation Lamichhane in custody for seven days to investigate a rape charge against him.

A 17-year-old girl had filed a rape complaint against Lamichhane at the Metropolitan Police Circle, Gaushala when he was out of the country.

He returned to Nepal almost a month after an arrest warrant was issued against him.

Though he expressed his desire to turn himself in, police apprehended him upon landing at the Tribhuvan International Airport.
