The ruling coalition has decided not to form a high-level commission to investigate the gold smuggling case.
The decision was reached at a meeting held on Monday at the Prime Minister's official residence, Baluwatar, according to Rajendra Prasad Pandey, Vice President of the CPN (Unified Socialist).
Pandey also added that the CPN-UML's demand for a high-level inquiry committee has hampered the current probe.
The meeting also discussed the ongoing investigation and the connection of Former Speaker Krishna Bahadur Mahara with the 100 kg gold smuggling case, as it is very early to draw a conclusion. During discussions, Home Minister Narayankaji Shrestha clarified that solely on the basis of the phone conversation, one cannot be proven guilty.
In the same meeting, the Janata Samajwadi Party warned the coalition against quitting the alliance if the administration continued to target the Gaur massacre, according to Pandey.
