A writ has been filed at the Supreme Court against the impeachment proposal registered in the Legislature-Parliament against Chief Justice Sushila Karki, reasoning that it was against the constitution.

The writ petitioners have sought a stay order not allowing any works related to the impeachment to be carried out.

Advocates Kanchan Krishna Neupane and Sunil Ranjan Singh jointly registered the writ in which they have argued that the impeachment proposal against the Chief Justice Karki (currently under suspension) was not in line with the Article 101 (2) of the constitution.
