KATHMANDU: Four individuals, including immigration officer Narbir Khadka, face charges of organized human trafficking and have been jailed by the Kathmandu District Court.

Khadka, accused of human trafficking and embezzlement, was arrested in December after being identified by a former Russian army recruit.

Justice Kapilmani Gautam ordered the arrest of Khadka, Arun Dahal, Manoj Tamang, and Sarojkumar Yadav for their alleged involvement in human trafficking.

Dinesh Gyawali, Rabin Aryal, Padam Lama, Binod Karki, and Ram Prasad Bhandari were released on bail. Geeta Sah has been jailed for failing to pay a bail of Rs 500,000.

Sah’s role was to identify people willing to go abroad on a visit visa. Dinesh, Rabin, and Ram Prasad collected names, and Manoj and Binod created fake documents.

Dahal, Tamang, and Yadav alleged that names sent abroad under the guise of a “Visit Visa” were given to immigration officer Khadka.

According to the list, Khadka, with other immigration officials, formed a team consisting of Kushal Baral, Shailendra Dhakal, Bimal Paudel, Bishnu Aryal, Bikas Dangol, Pitambar Rimal, and Sujan Phago.

Other officials of the immigration team, except Khadka, are currently at large.

The crime investigation office had previously probed the organized group involved in trafficking individuals abroad in the guise of seeking employment opportunities.

A team of nine, including Khadka, allegedly orchestrated a scam to send people abroad by creating fake papers and facilitating easy departure from the airport.

The group, involved in creating fake documents and compiling lists, allegedly operated by establishing a systematic network.

The Kathmandu Valley Crime Division compiled a list of those involved in human trafficking, online service operators, hotel operators, and immigration employees.

The organized group had reportedly created fake papers and sent individuals to Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, the United Arab Emirates, and Qatar.
