Kathmandu, Feb 10 (ANI): Four Nepal police personnel have been suspended for their carelessness in security while they were on duty when media entrepreneur and Chairman of Channel Nepal Jamim Shah was murdered in Lazimpat on Sunday.
Chief of Metropolitan Police Range, Kathmandu SP Ganesh KC has said the policemen were suspended as they failed to perform their duties.
Those suspended are Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Lokendra Pandit, Head Constable Tul Bahadur dhikari and Constables Duryodhan Yadav and Anil Rai.
On Monday, Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal had visited the family of slain media entrepreneur and assured that the government would bring his assailants to book.
Shah (47), who owned Channel Nepal, a television channel and Space Time Network, a cable television company, was shot dead by two motorcycle borne assailants in the busy Lazimpat area of Kathmandu.
A Nepali citizen with Kashmiri origin, Shah had been accused of having links to India's most sought after criminal Dawood Ibrahim - a charge he had denied. (ANI)
