Five individuals charged with evading revenue worth Rs169.28 million

The Department of Revenue Investigation on Sunday filed a case against five individuals at Kanchanpur District Court on charge of evading revenue of Rs169.28 million while smuggling 32kg of gold from India.

The defendants in the case are Laxman Tiruwa, Suraj Tiruwa, Sarita Tiruwa, Indira BK and Shankar Bahadur BK who have been accused of revenue evasion while smuggling the gold.

According to the department, Laxman had stolen the gold from Indian smugglers who had employed him as car driver some seven months ago on the New Delhi-Mizoram route. After learning from an experienced driver that the car he was driving had gold, Laxman fled to Nepal with gold, driving through Bhairahawa and arriving in his village of Jhalari in Kanchanpur district.
