Army chief row ends with SC annulling writ on Prez move

The Supreme Court (SC) on Thursday quashed the writ petition filed against President Dr Ram Baran Yadav’s move on the Army chief row during the Maoist-led government a year and half ago.

A full bench of SC judges Tap Bahadur Magar, Prem Sharma and Mohan Prasad Sitaula had invalidated the writ petition in its verdict, stating that the issue has lost its relevance.

President Yadav had reinstated the then Army Chief Rookmangud Katawal to his post by overturning the Maoist led government’s decision to sack him.

UCPN (Maoist), which had to quit the government following President Yadav’s decision, had called the move “unconstitutional”.
