The Patan High Court has acquitted former Speaker of the House of Representatives Krishna Bahadur Mahara, who had been accused of attempted rape.

“Stating that the evidence did not support the government attorney’s claim, a joint bench of Justices Madhav Prasad Pokharel and Bimal Subedi decided to clear all charges against the former Speaker and uphold district court’s decision,” informed Amrita Sharma, spokesperson at Patan High Court.
