The girl’s parents had lodged a complaint alleging that Paul had raped the girl for the last time in Shuklagandaki Municipality-4, Dulegonda, Tanahu. Five days after the complaint was lodged, Paul was arrested by the Tanahu police

He was taken into custody by the Tanahu Police and taken to the Area Police Office, Gaindakot on Tuesday. After the same girl lodged a complaint, she was handed over to Gaindakot police for investigation, police said.

The district court in Tanahu has given the police seven days to keep him in custody for investigation.

Police said that Joshi was arrested on the charge of trying to destroy the evidence of the incident, giving a minor a “so-so” and cheating an adult for tax purposes.

Shah, who went underground for four days after the complaint was registered, had alleged that a conspiracy had been hatched against him and that Joshi was also involved in the conspiracy.
