A person involved in a murder 16 years ago has been arrested and brought to Kathmandu by police from Qatar.
Central Police Spokesperson DIG Tek Prasad Rai stated that the police, in collaboration with the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol), arrested the person responsible for the murder that occurred on Shrawan 2, 2063 in Koteshwar by assaulting and using sharp weapons.
Ramkumar Magar, 36, of Dolakha Baiteshwar Rural Municipality-2 who was involved in the incident, was arrested, according to Rai.
Interpol issued red notices after it was discovered that Magar was hiding in Qatar in the name of foreign employment. As a result, he was deported by Qatar.
He was brought to Kathmandu and handed over to the Crime Investigation Office, on Tuesday. The legal process will continue from the District Police Complex in Kathmandu.
Headed by the Inspector General of Police and staffed by more than 10 police officers, Nepal Central Bureau, Kathmandu is a regular partner in INTERPOL-led global police operations. It is also Nepal’s gateway to wildlife investigations and specialized police units in the Himalayan region and beyond
Located on one of the most active wildlife trafficking routes in the world, Nepal is home to many endangered iconic animals, including the royal Bengal tiger, red panda, snow leopard, musk deer, and indigenous rhinoceros.
Other high-priority crime challenges for Nepal include drug trafficking, human trafficking, e-gambling, terrorism, cybercrime, and financial crime.
The international characteristics of these crimes and their links with crime networks around the world make the role of the INTERPOL National Central Bureau (NCB) in Nepal fundamental to maintaining national and regional security.
