Good morning!

Here’s a quick summary of important, ignored and interesting reports from Thursday to kick-start your day:

Mahara suspended from Parliament

Former speaker of the Parliament Krishna Bahadur Mahara has been suspended. Parliament Secretariat’s general secretary Manohar Prasad Bhattarai put out a notice that lawmaker Mahara had been suspended. The pay and perks he receives for being a parliamentarian have also been suspended.

Mahara was taken into police custody for investigation in an attempt-to-rape case filed against him by a female worker of the Parliament Secretariat.  He was taken into custody after the Kathmandu District Court granted permission to Nepal Police to arrest him based on a first information report (FIR) that was lodged against him last week.

Nepal embarrassed in both cricket and football

In an embarrassing day for Nepali sports, Nepal’s football and cricket teams suffered humiliating losses on Thursday. In the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers, Australia trashed Nepal 5-0 as Jamie Maclaren scored a hat-trick. The scoreline could have been worse if not for goalkeeper Kiran Chemjong’s heroics. Nepal now face Jordan in Amman on Tuesday.

In the ongoing pentangular T20 series in Oman, Nepal lost to the hosts by six wickets. Batting first, Nepal were bowled out for only 64 runs in 11 overs. In reply, Nepal did try to stage a fightback reducing Oman to 27 for 4, but Suraj Kumar played a composed inning and took Oman home. Nepal finished third in the five-nation T20 series behind Oman who won the tournament and Ireland.
