Dixit’s wife moves courtShanta Dixit, wife of arrested Sajha Yatayat Chairman Kanakmani, moved the Supreme Court on Wednesday demanding the release of her husband.
Shanta Dixit, wife of arrested Sajha Yatayat Chairman Kanakmani, moved the Supreme Court on Wednesday demanding the release of her husband.
In her writ, Shanta has complained that the anti-graft body has illegally detained her husband without disclosing the reasons. The apex court is scheduled to hear the case on Thursday.
The CIAA had taken Dixit into custody on April 22 as part of its investigation into complaints that he had amassed property disproportionate to his known sources of income. Dixit was among the 29 high-ranking public figures who were summoned by the CIAA in December last year. The commission has accused Dixit of violating the law by defying orders and not cooperating with the CIAA despite repeated notices. But Dixit claims his arrest is a part of vendetta for having opposed Lokman Singh Karki’s appointment as CIAA chief in the past.
