KATHMANDU: Nepal’s former Speaker Krishna Bahadur Mahara has moved Patan High Court with a review petition challenging the Kathmandu District Court’s order to send him to jail in an attempt to rape case.

A single bench of Judge Sudarshanraj Pandey on November 4 had made the order following the conclusion of a bail hearing for him.

Mahara has been accused of attempting to rape a female employee at Parliament Secretariat which he has been denying.

A rape case was filed at Kathmandu District Court against Mahara demanding seven and a half years imprisonment.

The District Attorney Office, Kathmandu had filed a case demanding a maximum of five years in jail for an attempt to rape and an additional two and a half years imprisonment for allegedly committing the crime by misusing power.

Mahara was arrested from his official residence in Baluwatar on October 6 after Kathmandu District Court issued an arrest warrant against him for allegedly raping the female employee.
