Former Nepalese Deputy Prime Minister Arrested In Fake Bhutanese Refugee Scam
Top Bahadur Rayamajhi, a former deputy prime minister, energy minister and secretary of the main opposition CPN-UML, was arrested tonight around 9:00pm at “a hideout” in Bhudhanikantha. He was evading arrest after being accused of bogus Bhutanese refugee fraud. The Kathmandu District Court issued an arrest warrant for Rayamajhi on May 3. He is suspected of being an accessory to a scam in which hundreds of Nepalis were swindled out of Rs. 500,000 and Rs. $5,000,000 with a promise to send and relocate them to foreign nations like the US under the guise of Bhutanese refugees. According to SSP Dan Bahadur Malla, “We were able to arrest the defendant on the basis of a notice.”
He added that Rayamajhi was staying at a relative’s house in Pasikot, Budhanilkantha, after arriving in Kathmandu yesterday. On May 3, Rayamajhi attended a public event in his hometown of Arghakhachi. Police contacted him about making an arrest that day as ordered by the court. Rayamajhi had contacted IGP Basanta Bahadur Kunwar, the chief of the Nepal Police, and asked him once again not to arrest him as he would voluntarily go to the police to give testimony. The next day, Rayamajhi told the police chief that he would be available and an arrest was not required, according to CPN UML president KP Sharma Oli.
