Nepal SC settles Pashupatinath temple row
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Kathmandu, Aug 1: The governing body of Nepal's world famous Pashupatinath temple has won a legal battle against Communist-led ruling coalition after the Supreme Court reversed the government's decision to dissolve the Trust of the 5th century Hindu shrine.
Culture Minister Khagendra Prasain, also the chairman of the Pashupati Area Development Trust (PADT) that runs the affairs of the shrine, through a letter to member secretary of the Trust had notified that the temple's executive committee has been dissolved on charges of misuse of the fund.
Judge Prakash Osti declared void Prasain's decision to sack all seven officials of the Trust.
