According to assistant spokesperson of CIAA, Devi Prasad Thapaliya, Mayor Maharjan, Deputy Mayor Muna Adhikari, along with former chief administrative officer, former chief of revenue department of the municipality, and five directors of the companies have been accused of corruption involving five different cases.
