Lenin, two others run away with money meant for Maoist cadres
Three UCPN (Maoist) cadres have reportedly disappeared with Rs 1.5 million set aside for former Maoist combatants deemed 'disqualified' by UNMIN.
One of the three include Lenin Bista, a leader of the former combatants. Bista cashed a Rs 15 lakh cheque issued by the Ministry of Peace and Reconstruction and disappeared with the sum, Kantipur daily reported.
The former combatants, who prefer to call themselves 'unverified', have been staging a series of protests in the past few months demanding that the government provide them facilities similar to former PLAs who chose voluntary retirement. nepalnews.com
