KATHMANDU: The Central Investigation Bureau of the Nepal Police has stressed the need to formulate separate laws against organised crime and to boost mutual legal assistance with foreign governments to combat transnational crime.
CIB officials said they arrived at the conclusion after reports suggested that international criminal gangs were involved in the murder of media entrepreneur Jamim Shah and Nepal Islami Sangh general secretary Faizan Ahmed.
“Extradition treaties with foreign governments are needed to thwart criminals working across borders,” a CIB report noted. CIB, in a statement today, refuted media reports linking the recent attacks on a Pakistani Embassy official and Central Jail inmate Yunus Ansari with Aditya Pal, the brains behind Ahmed’s murder.
