Nepal’s police on Monday began an investigation into a gun brawl in an upmarket wildlife resort involving controversial ousted crown prince Paras Bir Bikram Shah, more than two days after the incident occurred, after a media outcry and pressure from a senior minister.

Deputy superintendent of police Ravi Raj Khadka led a four-member police team to Tiger Tops jungle resort in southern Nepal’s Chitwan, a holiday destination celebrated for its wildlife, to inquire into reports that the trigger-happy Paras, notorious for his volatile temper, had fired shots in the air to intimidate two other guests, one of whom is the son-in-law of Deputy Prime Minister Sujata Koirala.

“The investigating team is yet to return and submit its report,” Chitwan police chief Pushpa Ranjit said.
