Nepal’s ex-prince was jailed for drug possession

KATHMANDU (PTI): Nepal’s controversial former crown prince Paras Shah was arrested in Thailand and charged with possession of marijuana, Bangkok reports said on Wednesday.

Police said the incident happened last month in the tourist resort of Phuket and Shah had to spend a night in jail on a charge of possessing an illegal drug. The former crown prince was later released on bail of 10,000 baht (Rs. 18,000).

A senior police officer in Phuket told the Bangkok Post that the former crown prince was arrested with a woman at a hotel in the resort island. He did not identify the woman.

The officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Phuket police had been called by the hotel to break up a quarrel between a man and a woman and they found the drugs while mediating the dispute. The man turned out to be the Nepalese former crown prince, he added.

Nepalese newspaper The Himalayan Times said the Nepalese embassy in Bangkok was informed about the case on October 27. The Nepalese embassy and Thai embassy in Nepal “have remained mum over this matter,” it added. Paras Shah has earlier been involved in similar escapades in Nepal.
