More than Rs 4 billion was filched while buying two wide body aircraft for Nepal Airlines corporation according to a report.
The report was prepared by the Parliament Accounts Committee (PAC), subcommittee headed by Nepali Congress lawmaker Rajan KC.

According to the report, the managing director of Nepal Airlines Corporation, Sugatratna Kansakar is out of line. Similarly, the report has recommended punishment for the tourism minister and secretary and those related with procurement of planes.
The committee has decided to recommend that the Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) to further probe those who are guilty.
