Kathmandu, Apr 25: In a significant verdict, former minister Mohammad Aftab Alam, also a prominent figure in the Nepali Congress party and a former Member of Parliament, has been sentenced to life imprisonment by the Rautahat District Court on Thursday.

A single bench presided over by Judge Matrikaprasad Acharya convicted Alam and three others, including his brother Mohammad Mahtab Alam, Sheikh Saraj, and Badri Sahni. The court decided to impose life imprisonment on Alam and his accomplices. Mukti Shah, another defendant in the case, was acquitted of all charges.

The charges against Alam stem from his alleged involvement in burning victims alive in a brick kiln during the Constituent Assembly elections on March 27, 2064. He was also accused of using explosives to perpetrate the heinous act.

Alam was apprehended on October 19, 2076, following an order from the Supreme Court.
