Kathmandu, Sept 26 : The Supreme Court (SC) has sought government's response in writing on why cases were not lodged against former prime minister duo Madhav Kumar Nepal and Dr Baburam Bhattarai in connection with the Lalita Niwas land scam.
A single bench of Justice Binod Sharma on Tuesday issued a show cause notice in the name of government over the matter after a preliminary hearing on a writ petition.
