5 Most Notorious Criminals In Nepal

Notorious criminals in Nepal aren’t a new thing. In fact, our humble land is a veteran for crime and criminals if you ask me.

Criminals and gang members have, for years, run the country in one way or another; whether by having close ties with politicians and leaders or by being politicians themselves. But let’s not blame just the politicians when people from all walks of life have committed crimes in this country.

Here are the 5 Most Notorious Criminals In Nepal.

Dinesh Adhikari (Chari)

Dinesh Adhikari aka Chari was a well-known figure of the Nepali crime scene. He had dozens of criminal cases filed under his name ranging from money extortion to smuggling and attempted murders. He was accused of smuggling rhino horns and yarshagumba as well.

Apart from being a gang leader, Chari was also a member of the Nepali Congress party and was heavily involved in politics. He had close ties with PM KP Sharma Oli and was elected Vice-President of the election constituent committee of CPN UML, Dhading-1.

Adhikari died in 2014 in the most movie-like police encounter in Samakhusi. He was shot in the chest and abdomen by the police and died on the spot.

Ranjan Koirala

Ranjan Koirala, the former Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of the Armed Police Force (APF) was sentenced to life imprisonment in January 2012. He was accused of murdering his wife, Geeta Dhakal, and burning the body wrapped in a plastic bag in the forest of Tistung Palung, Makwanpur.

Koirala was recently released from jail after serving only 8 and a half years of his life in jail term. He was released from Dilli Bazar prison in July 2020 after the Supreme Court ruled out his previous lifetime imprisonment term as inappropriate.

MD Jamil Bhatti

MD Jamil Bhatti is a Pakistani citizen who falls under the most wanted criminals list in Nepal. He was arrested in May 2010 at Tribhuban International Airport after the authorities found him ready to flee along with Rs. 1,550,000 worth of fake Indian currency.

Bhatti was sent to Central jail to serve his sentence. However, in March 2011, he made an escape after he was taken for treatment in Gangalal Hospital, Kathmandu. Police are still searching for him to date.

Krishna Bahadur Auji.

Krishna Bahadur Auji, a Nepali citizen, was a watchman in Delhi, India. He was working as a security guard in the building complex no. 141, in New Qutub Road, Delhi.

In March 2014, Auji robbed five shops in and around the area and also stole approximately Rs. 38 million as well as two laptops. He fleed the area without a single trace and the police have yet to capture him. They believe that he’s hiding in Nepal ever since the incident.

Deepak Manange

Rajiv Gurung, aka, Deepak Manange is one of the most notorious gangsters in Nepal. The self-proclaimed don is involved in numerous criminal activities including assaults and attempted murders.

He became the talk of the town after an altercation with the then Crown Prince Dipendra Shah’s personal secretary. He is said to have beaten up the prince’s aide-de-camp in his nightclub Yakzone, which he was forced to close after the incident.

Manange is most notable for his feud with his arch-rival and fellow gangster Chakre Milan. The two gangsters got into a fight where Chakre Milan was severely injured and almost lost his arms after Manange attacked him with a sword. He was later charged with attempted murder and arrested.

In the 2017 elections, Manange was elected to Gandaki Provincial Assembly from Manang constituency after joining CPN UML. Before that, he was a member of the Rashtriya Prajatantra Party (RPP) and had close ties with Pashupati Shamsher JBR. Manange also briefly joined the Federalist Socialist Party in 2011.
