Patan High Court has postponed the hearing on rape case against cricketer Sandeep Lamichhane.

A joint bench of Patan High Court judges Sudarshan Dev Bhatta and Purushottam Prasad Dhakal postponed the hearing on the case.

Lamichhane, who was convicted of rape, filed an appeal on February 22 against the decision of the bench of Judge Shishir Raj Dhakal of the Kathmandu District Court.

The District Court has sentenced cricketer Sandeep Lamichhane to eight years in prison in connection to a rape case. The bench also ordered the cricketer to pay a fine of Rs 300,000 and a compensation of Rs 200,000 to the victim for psychological distress.

In response to Lamichhane’s appeal, the Patan High Court has ordered authorities to obtain the birth certificate of Gaushala 26, the rape victim in the case concerning cricketer Lamichhane.

The Kathmandu District Court also ordered three times to submit this document. The district court also ordered to obtain the birth certificate of the mother of Gaushala 26.
