Nepal Police, with the help of INTERPOL, now has in custody Rajindra Pasman who is accused of fraud and organized crime in the banking sector.

He was brought to Nepal from Qatar, where he had been residing for employment and engaging in criminal activities remotely.

Pasman, originally from Aurahi Rural Municipality-5 in Dhanusha district, had been on the run, exploiting international borders to evade authorities.

The INTERPOL General Secretariat had issued a red notice against Pasman on December 7, 2023, after his involvement in the illegal transfer of Rs 900,000 from various accounts of Machhapuchhre Bank and use of ATM cards from different banks to execute fraudulent activities.
