Janakpurdham, October 18

The Dhanusha District Court on Friday released lawmaker Pramod Sah on a general date. He was arrested after he reportedly vandalised a Buddha Air counter at Janakpur Airport on Monday.

A bench of district judge Tej Narayan Paudel released Sah without any bail.

Police in Kathmandu had arrested the Rastriya Janata Party leader from the Tribhuvan International Airport on Tuesday. A case has already been filed against him at the court on the same day. The government has sought a jail sentence from five to 10 years for him as per Section 9(A) of the Civil Aviation Act 1959.

He was elected to the House of Representatives from Sarlahi-1 in the 2017 elections.
