The Ministry of Home Affairs has suspended SSP Rabiraj Shrestha of Nepal Police for three months as it investigates a foreign-currency smuggling case in which Shrestha is a prime suspect.

On 6 October, Indian national Binod Kumar Soni was found in possession of around Rs 12 million worth of foreign currency which had been passed to him by Shrestha’s driver Sobhit Karki. Surveillance cameras had caught Karki passing through security channels in order to reach Soni on the runway.

Nepal Police had written to the MoHA on Tuesday recommending Shrestha’s suspension. Constable Karki is still at large.
