12 operations in seven months under the leadership of Dr. Manoj KC, which increased confidence in the police

Kathmandu, September 2:  There are many excellent investigative officers in Nepal Police, but there is no environment for them to work in one place for at least one year. There are also some examples where some officers have proven themselves to be excellent even in a short period of time. In the police, most of the officers who serve the interests of the organization and the people are victims of political interests.

This is a practice from the past. Because of this, some police officers are more focused on serving the party leaders rather than serving the people of the country. However, many police officers are serving the country and the people. In the police service, it is often heard that people are prosecuted for doing bad work, but it is rarely heard that they are prosecuted for doing good work. A representative case of such a rarely heard case is the transfer of Dr. Manoj KC, head of Kathmandu Valley Crime Investigation Office of Nepal Police.

Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Dr. KC, who opened an investigation file on the gang trying to commit human trafficking in the US by making Nepali citizens fake Bhutanese refugees, was unable to conduct further investigation. The government of KC, which is going to destroy the web of the investigation process by taking additional complaints of 18 victims, transferred them to the police headquarters. He was able to work in that office only for seven months. Investigations of Nepal Police have been very successful.

But as soon as the name of the political leadership is attached, it is a tradition that the investigation is done. There are also police officers who go to the houses of leaders who are involved in crime. Because of this, there were many criticisms that the Nepal Police has become the gatekeeper of the interests of the leaders of the political parties. Since the Nirmala murder case, the public’s trust in the police had almost been broken due to serious negligence by the police in some cases. Both fear and trust in the police were disappearing among the citizens. The parliamentarians also commented that there is no fear or trust in the police during the parliament meeting.

When Arju shed tears in front of the Home Minister

After the investigation into the fake Bhutanese refugee case was started for supplementary cases, under the pressure of Nepali Congress chairman Sher Bahadur Deuba, who is also the former prime minister, the government transferred Dr. KC, the head of the Valley Crime Investigation Office. After Dr. KC started the investigation process with more complaints of 18 victims, Nepali Congress leader Dr. Arju Rana Deuba did not start the campaign to transfer KC anyway for fear of being arrested. For that, her husband Sher Bahadur Deuba called Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Narayankaji Shrestha to his rented residence in Dhumbarahi and ordered him to be removed immediately. At the same time, Arju joined hands with the Home Minister and requested the immediate transfer of KC. She did not persuade him to get caught otherwise. Which is now being discussed equally within Nepal Police, Nepali Congress and Singh Darbar. Home Minister Shrestha told Deuba that he would not be able to directly remove only KC and promised to transfer Kathmandu Valley Police Chief AIG Shyamalal Gyawali and then transfer KC. The Home Minister said that the transfer of both the police officers was not his wish but he had to transfer them to preserve the power and also held a briefing with the Prime Minister. After that, the news about Gyawali and KC’s immediate transfer became a headline in all the media. Less than a week later, the Ministry of Home Affairs transferred Gyawali and KC. Gyawali was transferred while staying outside the country due to work, while KC was transferred during the investigation of the fake refugee case. His sleep was disturbed after the police head office confirmed that the audio message of the middleman Sandesh Sharma that he had handed over the money to Nepali Congress leader Rana and Manju Khand was Sharma’s. In the said audio, it is said that Rana received 20 million rupees and Congress MP Khand received 60 million rupees.

The Maoists could not keep the workers happy

After Dr KC opened the file of Bhutanese refugees, it was the leader and worker of the ruling CPN Maoist Center who campaigned the most and lobbied to win. They saw Prachanda’s honesty, Narayankaji Shrestha did a good job in the anti-corruption campaign, talking about Prachanda’s leap in establishing good governance, he acted like a fake Bhutanese refugee case. He explained that the government did not insist and have no bias by arresting even the influential leaders of the ruling party. But unfortunately, when the Maoist leaders and workers were trying to create an organization among the people by selling the issue, the government opened the file of fake Bhutanese refugees and started cracking down on the police who had done a good job. The government transferred KC to the police headquarters while investigating the complaints of more victims. Transfer of staff and police officers is a common issue. But even though he is doing a good job, it cannot be considered natural that the officer who is conducting further investigation on the fake refugee case, which the entire government and Maoist workers are celebrating, is being transferred. This confirmed that the file of fake Bhutanese refugees was opened by the will of the Maoist-led government or that those involved in the case were not arrested on the orders of the Prime Minister and Home Minister, but rather that the officers were fearlessly carrying out their duties to protect the honor of a police organization.
