CPN-UML Member of Parliament Nejma Khatun misbehaved with Bara District Court judge Bhoj Raj Sharma as the court verdict was not in her favour today.
Earlier, a single bench of district judge Sharma had sentenced Ram Chandra Pyasi Kushwaha to ten years in jail for murdering Khatun’s husband and CPN-UML leader Mahamud Alam.
Expressing her dissatisfaction with the verdict, Khatun misbehaved with the judge at his office. After she continuously shouted, Sharma left his office and entered another chamber. However, Khatun’s supporters vandalised the chamber window chanting slogans.
The situation turned normal after a police team arrived.
Khatun and her supporters were demanding confiscation of all property and life imprisonment for the murder mastermind Ram Chandra Pyasi. “I will file a complaint against judge Sharma,” argued Khatun.
The court had given a ten-year jail term for the accused Indian nationals Mahammad Phahid alias Bipin Yadav, Atik Khan and Raju Shreebastav.
Similarly, the court ordered 21-year-jail term for main accused of the murder Rajesh Mishra alias Rabi Pandey.
UML leader Alam was murdered two-and-a-half years ago when he was contesting election for the Constituent Assembly at Lipanimal VDC of Bara.
NBA slams misbehaviour against judge
Nepal Bar Association, condemned the alleged misbehaviour against Bara District Judge Bhoj Raj Sharma yesterday by a group led by CPN-UML lawmaker Nejma Khatun.
The NBA said a group led by lawmaker Khatun had vandalised the bench and verbally abused the judge yesterday.
The lawyers’ umbrella body said its serious attention had been drawn to this illegal act committed by a group led by Khatun, who holds the responsible post of a lawmaker.
The NBA urged the government to launch an investigation into the objectionable and illegal act and to bring the culprit to book so as to protect the independence and impartiality of the judiciary.
The lawyers’ body also said that disrespectful and indecent behaviour against a respected body like a court and a judge over the issue of a verdict passed, attacks the basic spirit of the independence of the judiciary.
