The Department has charged the proprietors of JSS Mobile Collection and Services Pvt Ltd and Shree Shyam Impex, Mohan Bansal and Govinda Bansal, respectively, of misappropriating foreign exchange equivalent to Rs 859 million 522 thousand.

Department’s director general Dirgha Raj Mainali said that cases have been filed against the two traders at the Kathmandu District Court on Wednesday, seeking to realise the amount misappropriated, a fine up to three times the amount and three years of imprisonment.
