Senior advocate Surendra Bhandari has filed a complaint at the Kathmandu District Administration Office Wednesday morning demanding security claiming that Chief Justice (CJ) Gopal Parajuli has threatened to kill him.
Bhandari had fought the contempt of court case the Supreme Court (SC) slapped on Dr Govinda KC as the doctor’s main lawyer. The complaint mentions that Parajuli phoned Bhandari on the day pleadings on the case completed and threatened to kill him. Bhandari told Setopati that Parajuli had made a threatening call even after his article was published in Nagarik daily a few days back.
“He threatened to kill me over the phone on the day of pleadings. He again phoned and threatened me after that. A few persons arrived at my office yesterday and reportedly looked for me. My colleagues said they were saying ‘where is Surendra Bhandari. We know what to do with him.’ I don’t have animosity with others. I have now filed complaint at the District Administration Office demanding security as CJ has threatened me over the phone,” Bhandari elaborated.
