Arun Chaudhary released
KATHMANDU: Arun Chaudhary, the brother of billionaire and Member of Parliament Binod Chaudhary, has been released today following his earlier arrest in connection with the Bansbari-based Leather Shoe Factory land scandal.
The Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) released Chaudhary following the order of the Kathmandu District Court amidst speculation and controversy surrounding the case.
Earlier, the Kathmandu District Court ordered the CIB to release Chaudhary from custody and continue the investigations.
The court’s actions have sparked discussions even at the Supreme Court level.
In the background, Binod Chaudhary has reportedly been exerting considerable influence, mobilizing various channels from Baluwatar to the judiciary in efforts to secure his brother’s release.
Allegations have emerged of pressure being applied in support of the Deputy Prime Minister from Baluwatar, as well as towards a judge, who happens to be a batchmate of Chaudhary’s wife.
