Police arrested Sagar Limbu, a Taplejung district committee member of the Nepal Communist Party led by Netra Bikram Chand on March 25. Earlier, on March 5, the government had lifted the ban on the Chand-led party and agreed to dismiss all cases against them. However, the court has not stopped issuing arrest warrants against the group’s leaders.
This is the first time that a leader of CPN has been arrested after an agreement with the government. Police said that the court had already issued an arrest warrant for him in connection with the blast.
