Cricketer Sandeep Lamichhane gets clean chit

KATHMANDU: The Patan High Court has given clean chit to cricketer Sandeep Lamichhane in a rape case.

He was acquitted of rape by overturning the order of the Kathmandu District Court.

Responding to a complaint filed by Gaushala-26 (name changed), the Kathmandu District Court on January 10 had sentenced Lamichhane to eight years in prison and imposed a fine of Rs 500, 000 for raping a girl.

Lamichhane had filed an appeal at the high court demanding reversal of the decision.

A division bench of judges Sudarshan Dev Bhatta and Anju Uprety Dhakal on Wednesday pronounced the verdict after hearing arguments of both sides.
