A leader of Nepal Tarun Dal, the youth wing of Nepali Congress (NC), has been arrested for writing “defamatory post” against Nepal Communist Party Co-chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal on Facebook. Former central member of Tarun Dal and tourism entrepreneur, Subod Pradhan, has been arrested for allegedly posting “offensive remark” against Dahal.
According to Tarun Dal Chitwan President Ram Shrestha, Pradhan was arrested Sunday morning and has been detained at District Police Office, Bharatpur, for interrogation.
SP at Chitwan District Police Office, Sushil Singh Rathore said Pradhan was arrested based on the complaints that he wrote “objectionable sentence” on Facebook. The post Pradhan wrote three days ago has been deleted from the social media site.
Pradhan is a member of Nepali Congress Mahasamiti and General Secretary of Democratic Sports Forum. He owns tourist hotels in Narayangadh and Meghauli.
“We have detained Pradhan for interrogation after a complaint was registered against him. No serious charge has been lodged. He should be kept in custody if any charge is filed. We haven’t decided next step,” said SP Rathore.
