NAC pilot faces allegations of falsifying educational credentials

Kathmandu: The Investigation Commission has registered a case in the Special Court accusing Samrat Bahadur Shah, a pilot with Nepal Airlines, of falsifying his educational qualifications.

In 2071 B.S., Shah was appointed as a Junior Captain and subsequently promoted to Captain in the eighth level. The Commission initiated an investigation after suspicions arose regarding the authenticity of Shah’s educational certificates.

According to Amrit Bahadur Rai, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Shah is alleged to have presented forged documents claiming to have passed with first division from B.S.E Inter College Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh, India. The Investigation Commission contends that Shah, by submitting falsified educational certificates, benefited from the fraudulent act, leading to corruption.

Shah had asserted that he graduated with first division honors from B.S.E Inter College Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh, India. However, the Investigation Commission revealed that the presented documents were forged. The Commission notified that Shah had submitted fake educational certificates, misusing his position as a pilot.

The case now filed in the Special Court alleges that Shah, by presenting false academic credentials, engaged in corruption to gain advantages in his capacity as a pilot. Further legal proceedings are expected to unfold as the investigation progresses.
