KATHMANDU, March 16: The Supreme Court (SC) scrapped the writ petition filed against the citizenship ordinance on Wednesday.

A joint bench of acting chief justice Deepak Kuamr Karki, justices Meera Khadka, Hari Krishna Karki, Ishwar Kathiwada and Ananda Monhan Bhattari took a decision to this effect.

Earlier, senior advocate Borna Bahadur Karki had filed three petitions against the ordinance.

The then KP Sharma Oli-led government had introduced the citizenship ordinance on May 23, 2021. The apex court had then ordered not to implement the ordinance on June 10 the next month.
