The circumstances of Dixit's arrest are questionable, raising questions about proper judicial procedure. The IFJ urges the Government of Nepal to immediately release Dixit and conduct a transparent investigation into the arrest and the CIAA's allegations.” Prominent journalists, activists and scholars from India, Nepal, Bangladesh, the US, Australia, the UK and Sri Lanka, urged the Nepal government to release well-known journalist Kanak Mani Dixit.
