A seven member full bench headed by chief justice Gopal Prajuli is hearing on contempt of court case against Kantipur daily. The full bench of justice consists of Om Prakash Mishra, Cholendra Shumsher JBR, Dipak Kumar Karki, Kedar Prasad Chalise, Sarada Prasad Ghimire and Tej Bahadur KC.

After hearing statements from Kantipur Publications Chairman and Managing Director Kailash Sirohiya, Director Swastika Sirohiya, Kantipur daily Editor-in-Chief Sudheer Sharma and reporter Krishna Gyawali on Tuesday, a division bench of Justices Baman Kumar Shrestha and Dambar Bahadur Shahi had decided to send the case to the full bench.

In its written statements furnished before the bench, Kantipur daily had stated that their news about the Chief Justice had not dishonored the court.

In an interim order on February 25, CJ Parajuli had directed the Press Council Nepal to probe news reports published by Kantipur daily that questioned inconsistencies in his birth date in official documents.
