Criminal involvement of Chari
According to the police, Chari, had been hiding in India for years before he returned back to Kathmandu some 15 months ago. There were numerous complaints against Chari to police and the police was in a look out for him in numerous charges. He is told to be mainly focused in areas like Thamel, Balaju and Nayabazar area for his operation.
Chari was charged with a murder attempt of one of his past friends, Radhe Shyam Bhandari. Radhe Shyam and Chari had disputes at that time and had parted their ways. The dispute between them increased when Chari entered the ruling political party – CPN-UML. Some eight months ago a gang led by Radhe Shyam Bhandari attacked Chari. In revenge, Bhandari was critically injured when he attacked with khukuri in Nayabazar.
He was also arrested by the police with arms and Rs 2.1 million in check. He had extorted the money from the businessmen in Nuwakot district. He was also arrested on charge of trading rhinoceros horns by the Central Investigation Bureau (CBI).
The political connection has always helped him to escape punishment.
