The Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority on Tuesday filed a corruption case at the Special Court against Raj Narayan Pathak, one of its former commissioners, on the charge of accepting Rs7.8 million bribe “to settle” the ownership dispute at a Bhaktapur-based college.
The case is rare as a commissioner of the anti-graft body himself has been embroiled in the corruption case.
