Kathmandu: Police have arrested two persons charge-sheeted as the main accused in the much-talked-about Lalita Niwas land grab case.

A team mobilized from the Central Investigation Bureau of Nepal Police arrested Ram Kumar Subedi and his wife Madhavi Subedi from Swoyambhu on Tuesday night.

They were on the run after a graft case was filed at the Special Court.

The anti-graft body on February 5 had filed a case against 110 people including former Deputy Prime Minister Bijay Kumar Gachhadar in the controversial land scam while 65 persons and organizations were named defendants to regain the land. They have been accused of transferring the public land into individual ownership. Gachhadar is currently out on a bail.
