When the Nepal police arrested Dr Amit Kumar in Chitwan, about 200 km from here, the officers were ecstatic. For their success had come about without India's assistance, a fact Upendra Kant Aryal, who heads the Kathmandu Valley crime branch, stressed on. Aryal had expressed his disappointment with Indian authorities for not responding to requests for details even though they were tracking the fugitive's movement in Nepal through local intelligence networks. He further declared that at least three cases would be filed against Dr Kumar on February 10—for possession of a fake passport and foreign currency beyond the legal permit, and for "luring" poor Nepali villagers to donate kidneys.

But the jubilation was thwarted when three CBI officers from India reached Kathmandu on an Indian Airlines flight on February 9. They remained ensconced in the aircraft while Asst Inspector General of Nepal Police, Hem Gurung, handed over Dr Kumar to them.
