For the past few weeks, the Nepal Bar Association, the umbrella organisation of Nepali lawyers, has continued a demonstration inside the court premises demanding the resignation of Chief Justice Cholendra Shamsher Rana as he has been accused of partnering with the executive on various occasions during the premiership of KP Sharma Oli and Sher Bahadur Deuba. But, Rana is adamant against the demand.
During the demonstration today, a clash ensued as police tried to contain the demonstration. In the process, six lawyers have been injured, informs advocate Tikaram Bhattarai.
