१३ भदौ, काठमाडौं । The contempt of court case registered against Kathmandu Metropolitan City Mayor Balendra (Balen) Shah was heard in the Supreme Court on Monday.
Advocate Deepak Raj Joshi filed a petition demanding action against Shah for contempt of court. The application was heard on Monday in a single bench of Judge Harikrishna Karki .
The Supreme Court had given an interim order not to destroy the structure of Narvik Hospital. Against that order, Balen responded by saying, “Now the Supreme Court will be allowed to do the work of passing the map.”
Joshi filed a petition in the Supreme Court saying that his response was contempt of court. If the court accepts the petition and issues an order in Shah’s name, he must appear in person or submit a written answer through his successor.
