After the kidney racket was busted in Gurgaon, Amit Kumar smartly reached Nepal from Abu Dhabi on December 30 by Etihad Airways (EY 292).

He reached Kathmandu at around 8.30 pm. After staying in Kathmandu for one night in a five-start hotel in New Baneshwar, the kidney doctor took Nepal’s domestic airlines to Bhairawa’s Gautam Buddha airport and crossed the
Indo-Nepal border at Sunauli and went to Gorakhpur.

On January 26, he entered Nepal through Sunauli border and flew back to Kathmandu from Bhairawa and checked into Hotel Radisson at Lazimpat in Kathmandu. His associate Pankaj Jha had booked his room in the hotel. Interestingly, the five-star hotel is 250 metres away from the Embassy of India in Nepal, and is frequented by the Indian diplomats.
