KATHMANDU: The Kathmandu District Court has allowed the suspended captain of the Nepali cricket team, Sandeep Lamichhane, to be detained for two more days.

According to SP Dinesh Mainali, the court has given permission to extend the custody period for 2 days for the fourth time.

The former captain is accused of raping a 17-year-old girl.

The girl filed a complaint alleging that Sandeep took her to a hotel and raped her on August 21.

An investigation is being conducted against him under Section 219 of the Criminal Code 2074. If the crime against him is proven, he will be imprisoned for 10 to 12 years as per the existing legal provisions.

The minor had filed a case against the cricketer on September 6 at the Metropolitan Police Circle, Gaushala.

After Sandeep returned from abroad on October 6, the police arrested him from the airport.

Sandeep has been claiming that the complainant is above 18 years of age and the allegations made against him are ill-intent.
