Kathmandu, Nepal: Challenging its previous verdict to nationalize her property obtained through dowry, former Princess Prerana Rajya Laxmi Singh has moved the Supreme Court (SC), the apex court of the country on Friday.

Former Princess Singh filed a writ petition at the SC claiming that the property she had obtained through dowry should be returned in her name overturning the previous verdict of the SC. 

A joint bench of then Chief Justice Sushila Karki, Justices Deepak Karki and Sapana Malla Pradhan had issued a verdict about two years back nationalizing the 15 ropanis and 1 anna of land based in Chhauni that Prenana had obtained through dowry.

As the land was in the name of former King Birendra Shah, former King and her father Gyanendra Shah had given the land to his daughter as dowry while marrying her off.
