SUPREME COURTORDER STAYS GOVT. DOLE TO FORMER FIGHTERS Kathmandu, 26 April: A division bench of the supreme court Friday directed government to make laws to distribute Rs 200,000 government to every former disqualified Maoist combatant. The previous government of Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai took a decision for a blanket disbursement of government funds for fighters disqualified by UNMIN amid threats of protests by former guerrilla fighters. A division bench of Justices Ram Kumar Shah and Gyanendra Bahadur Karki issued the directive. Advocates Biswas Acharya, Bimala Bartaula and Radha Sigdel last November challenged the Bhattarai government decision. nnnn
