Police arrested the couple from their home on February 14, 2015. The district court had issued a verdict to sentence the Tamang couple and 36-year-old Krishna Bahadur Lopchan to prison after finding them guilty in the murder of 34-year-old Setimaya Tamang of Dhaibung VDC-3. While Krishna Bahadur is now free after serving his jail sentence the Tamang couple had absconded immediately after the court issued it the verdict.
