Supreme Court allows Sandeep Lamichhane to go to abroad for match

Kathmandu: The Supreme Court has allowed the cricketer Sandeep Lamichhane, who was accused of raping a minor, to go abroad with conditions.

A joint bench of judges Sapana Pradhan Malla and Kumar Chudal decided to allow Sandeep to go abroad today.

The decision of the Patan High Court banning Sandeep from going abroad was overturned by the Supreme Court.

According to the order of the Supreme Court, if Sandeep goes to play any competition abroad, he has been asked to appear before the district court in Kathmandu within 15 days of the competition.

Lamichhane filed an application in the Supreme Court last Thursday to play in the ICC World Cup League-2 ODI series involving Nepal, UAE and Papua New Guinea, which is being held in the UAE.

The ICC World Cup League-2 series has started in UAE from today.
