Kathmandu, Nepal: The Supreme Court (SC) has on Sunday issued an interim order in the name of the government not to implement its decision to sack Gopal Bahadur Khadka from the post of Managing Director of the Nepal Oil Corporation (NOC).
 
A single bench of Justice at the apex court of the country Purushotam Bhandari issued the interim order asking the government not to implement its decision to remove him from NOC’s top post.
 
The government had sacked Khadka from his post on the alleged charge of involvement in irregularities while purchasing lands in different districts to set up storage facilities.
 
Challenging the government’s decision, Khadaka had moved the SC demanding his reinstatement claiming that the Cabinet decision to sack him was illegal and inappropriate.
 
As the media reports were poured over the issue of financial irregularities, the parliamentary committees had also formed separate committees to investigate over the issue.  Separate committees had also instructed the government to take action against Khadak with the concussion that financial irregularities were occurred while purchasing the lands. 
 
The Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) has also been holding investigation over the issue.
