Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Ramesh Kharel has been transferred from Metropolitan Police Range to Police Headquarters in Kathmandu on Sunday.
Kharel has been posted in work division at the headquarters. SSP Uttam Karki has been given the responsibility of Metropolitan Police Range in the place of Kharel.
SSP Kharel came under scrutiny after he reportedly accused the Deputy Inspector Generals (DIG) of knocking on ‘powerhouses with briefcase full of money’ to get them promoted to the Additional Inspector General position which has been lying vacant for past several months.
Election Commission had not approved Kharel’s transfer as poll code was already in effect for the by-election in Kathmandu constituency no 2.
