July 8, Kathmandu. The Judicial Council has formed a committee to investigate Kathmandu District Court Judge Raj Kumar Koirala.
The committee formed under the chairmanship of Judicial Council member and senior advocate Ram Prasad Shrestha will have Patan High Court judges Mahesh Pudasaini and Mahesh Sharma Poudel as members.
Spokesperson and Joint Secretary of the Judicial Council Manav Bahadur Karki informed that the committee has been asked to submit the report within 45 days.
