KATHMANDU: The Supreme Court has rejected a writ petition filed against the government’s decision to appoint Dhiraj Pratap Singh as the Inspector General of Nepal Police (IGP).

A division bench of acting Chief Justice Deepak Kumar Karki and Justice Kumar Chudal on Friday ruled that the cabinet’s decision to appoint Singh as IGP was legal.

With this order, petitioner Additional Inspector General (AIG) Bishwaraj Pokhrel either must report to the police headquarters and resume work or resign.

In addition, the apex court also quashed another petition filed by DIGs Ishwarbabu Karki, Ghanshyam Aryal and Prakashjung Karki against the decision to promote Basant Kumar Pant and Rabindra Bahadur Dhanuk along with Singh to the post of AIG.
