Kathmandu: The gold Jalhari kept at the top of the Pashupatinath temple has been removed and cleaned for the investigation.

To find out the real weight of Jalhari, the Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority team has reached the Pashupatinath temple this evening.

The Pashupatinath temple had a silver jalhari earlier. About three years ago, the then government led by KP Oli decided to put a gold jalhari in place of the silver jalhari.

One hundred and three kilos of gold was purchased for that. After the lawmakers have raised question over the weight of gold jalhari, CIAA has started investigation.
