Kathmandu: On Friday, the Dhanusha District Court extended the remand of Kantipur Media Group Chairman Kailash Sirohiya by three days.

A single bench of Judge Romakanta Gyawali allowed the district police office to keep Sirohiya in custody until Sunday to further investigate the allegations levelled against him.

On Wednesday, police presented the KMG chair before the court, seeking a 10-day remand to investigate a citizenship certificate-related case. The district attorney’s office, however, wanted to detain Sirohiya for five days.

A police team, including Senior Superintendent Sanuram Bhattarai and Superintendent Rabindra Regmi of the Kathmandu Valley Crime Investigation Office, had arrested Sirohiya on Tuesday from his office at the Kantipur Publications headquarters in Thapathali, Kathmandu. He was then taken to Dhanusha, where a complaint was filed against him.
