Lokman Singh Karki the suspended Chief of the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) was attacked by 2 cadets of CPN Maoist while attending on a hearing in supreme court. He was smeared black paste on his face by two people who attacked him from behind in the supreme court premises. The act itself is demoralizing and proves how the political parties and their cadets see and feel about the judiciary and human values. Lokman had visited the supreme court on the hearing of the petition challenging Karki's qualifications for his past post.
Police have arrested the two after the attack.
A full bench of SC comprising Justices Ishwor Prasad Khatiwada, Ananda Mohan Bhattarai, and Anil Kumar Singh was designated to conduct hearing on Karki’s case. The SC quashed an application submitted by Karki's lawyers seeking to postpone the hearing citing Nepal Bar Association day.
