Rape-Accused Cricketer Sandeep Lamichhane Makes A Social Media Appearance

The Nepali cricketing fandom was thrown in for a loop when one of their stars, Sandeep Lamichhane, was accused of rape of a minor. Lamichhane has had one of the most promising careers in Nepali cricket history, even scoring a seat in some international cricket clubs as well. The accusation came just as Lamichhane left for Trinidad & Tobago to participate in the Caribbean Premier League.

The reports that followed the initial news didn’t paint a flattering picture of Lamichhane’s personal life. A number of women came forward with stories of how he had allegedly cold-texted them, and asked to switch to the more secure app Snapchat. Some women shared stories of how the star cricketer had invited them over to his table at clubs in shady circumstances. 

Lamichhane has simply been out of contact ever since news of the rape complaint was published on August 7. The police has already taken measures including putting Lamichhane on the Immigration Department’s black list, and initiating the process to put out an INTERPOL red notice on him. Save for a single post proclaiming his innocence, his presence was virtually unseen on social media as well. 

Until yesterday. On the evening of September 25, he has made a long post on his Facebook page proclaiming his innocence, and promising a speedy return. 

The long and flowery post takes many detours along the way, seemingly to assert his position as the most valuable cricket player of Nepal. Included within the statement are gems such as the self-proclamation that he has had a major role in uplifting Nepali cricket in the itnernational level. He also condemned the many rumors that had harmed his public image. 

Most interestingly, however, Lamichhane has claimed that the reason for his long disappearance of more than 18 days has been because of supposed health issues. Rather than give a name to his ailments, he vaguely explains that he has been bedridden due to the stress of having his reputation tarnished. Yep, we know how that sounds. He claimed that he’s been isolating himself as per instructions by the doctor. However, he still neglected to mention his location in the long post.

A Twitter post has perfectly summarized the entire tone of this post:
