Supreme Court rejects case against King

The Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed a petition filed against King Gyanendra.

Acting upon a petition filed by advocate Jitman Basnet, a single bench of Justice Tahiar Ali Ansari ruled, "Since the rejection order passed by the administration (registar) of the SC was based on existing law, there was no need to proceed it further."

After the rejection order by the administration, advocate Basnet has challenged the administration's move in the Justice's bench.

Joint registar Til Prasad Shrestha had refused to admit a contempt of Court case filed against King Gyanendra and army officials.

The SC administration had rejected the petition citing technical ground.
