The Supreme Court (SC) issued a show cause order for not making appropriate decisions regarding the management of 'disqualified' combatants involved in the armed struggle.
A single bench of Justice Sapana Malla Pradhan today issued the order against CPN (Maoist Centre) Chairperson Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda' and party's the then leader Dr Baburam Bhattarai in the same case.
The apex court has also issued an order that the case be dealt with top priority.
The young combatants involved in the armed struggle led by the then CPN (Maoist) party were deemed 'disqualified' and were taken out of the camp while integrating with the Nepal Army.
Lenin Bista and other combatants deemed incompetent combatants had registered a case in the court expressing their reservation that the decision of the party did not contribute to their proper management.
