The investigation committee has concluded that the investigating officer has not been able to pay attention to everything even though the pressure of cases is high in the Kathmandu police premises.

The Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) of the police on 14 December 2077 Budhathoki arrested from India Was done. In a statement to police, he admitted involvement in Rawal’s abduction. He had also admitted his involvement before the public prosecutor. But he denied the allegations in court.
