In a media report first runner up of Miss Nepal 2010, and Miss Nepal Earth 2010 Sahana Bajracharya, was accused of having sex in a car with her coworker at Kantipur TV, Suraj Giri. In a report published in ‘Sanghu’ Weekly, police officer in Chitwan was cited as the news source. But, Sahana and Suraj have jointly released a statement that the information published in the newspaper is baseless and it was aimed to defame their character.
Posting the statement, Sahana wrote, "This is my and friend Suraj Giri’s official press statement. I am agitated and very hurt about the baseless reports that went viral yesterday! Most media went on to over-publicize it without following even the basics of media ethics. If the police caught us, couldn’t anyone at least ask the police about what happened?"
