Kathmandu District Court issues order to keep Sandeep Lamichhane in custody
KATHMANDU: The Kathmandu District Court has issued an order to carry out an investigation against suspended Nepal national cricket team skipper Sandeep Lamichhane by keeping him in custody.
A single bench of Justice Madhav Prasad Ghimire issued the order after the hearing today.
Kathmandu District Court Information Officer Deepak Dahal said that an order has been issued to remand Lamichhane in judicial custody. He will be kept in central jail.
Earlier on September 7, 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 on October 6.
