License of two pilots suspended

KATHMANDU: The Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) has suspended the license of two pilots.

CAAN spokesperson and Deputy Director General Jagannath Niraula said the license of Senior Captain Santosh Shah and Captain Sanjib Shrestha have been suspended as the two pilots of the Tara Air engaged in a physical fight in the premises of the airport at Manthali, Ramechhap this morning.

“The license of the two senior captains have been suspended until further notice due to the breach of the national security standard. Their license will be revoked or other action as per the law might be taken against them after detailed investigation,” Niraula added.

CAAN stated that the reason behind the two pilots belonging to the same company resorting to physical fight is yet to be known.
