A rape complaint has been filed by a minor against Nepali cricket captain Sandeep Lamichhane.
The District Police Range Kathmandu issuing a press statement Wednesday morning has confirmed that a rape complaint against Lamichhane has been registered on Tuesday.
The 17-year-old girl has complained that Lamichhane took her out to different places of Bhaktapur and Kathmandu on August 21, a day before Lamichhane left for the bilateral series with Kenya.
She has accused Lamichhane of raping her multiple times in room number 305 of a hotel in Kathmandu Metropolitan City Ward Number 9 that night.
The Metropolitan Police Gaushala Circle and the District Police Kathmandu are jointly investigating the case.
The girl is currently under police protection and has undergone health check-up.
Lamichhane left to play in the Carribean Premier League after leading the team to a 3-2 victory in the five-match Twenty20 series against Kenya. Rohit Kumar Paudel then led the Nepali team in the one-dayers in his absence.
