Hearing on NRB governor’s case to continue today

KATHMANDU: As the hearing on a case filed by Nepal Rastra Bank (NRB) Governor Maha Prasad Adhikari against the government’s decision did not complete at the Supreme Court on Thursday, the hearing on the petition has been scheduled for Friday as well.

Though the division bench of SC Justices Sapana Pradhan Malla and Tanka Bahadur Moktan started the hearing on the case on April 26, it was scheduled for Thursday citing limited time.

NRB Governor Adhikari on April 17 filed a case at the SC demanding abrogation of the decision made by the government to form a probe committee to investigate him without prior information and justification. Governor Adhikari was thus suspended from his position.

However, he returned to his regular duties after the SC stayed the decision of the government with an interim order on April 19.
