A separate meeting of 14 judges is being held simultaneously at the same the Chief Justice Rana called meeting was scheduled.

According to high placed sources, the meeting will now decide how to proceed ahead.

Similarly, a meeting of the Nepal Bar Association and the SC Bar Association is also being held to discuss on the latest developments in the court.
