Supreme Court judge shot dead in Nepal, says police

KATHMANDU (AFP) - Gunmen on a motorbike shot and killed a Nepalese Supreme Court judge under investigation for corruption on Thursday as he left a temple in the centre of the capital Kathmandu, police said. Mr Rana Bahadur Bam, 64, was being investigated by the Judiciary Council on allegations of taking bribes to hand softer sentences to criminals. 'He and a security guard were returning from Bagalamukhi temple. A motorbike blocked their way and there was gunfire at 11.08am local time (1.23pm Singapore time),' said Kathmandu police spokesman Rabi Raj Shrestha, adding that Mr Bam's bodyguard was injured in the attack. 'He succumbed to multiple bullet wounds in his armpit. We will interrogate the (judge's) driver to find out more,' said Mr Shrestha.
