Kathmandu: A gathering of Nepali photojournalists has required the arrival of an Indian photographic artist who is stopped in the country’s Jhapa prison for more than seven months for supposedly conveying picture printouts of USD 100 notes, which he would have “required there for shooting a short film”.

Durlav Roy Chowdhury, 24, an occupant of Salkia in West Bengal’s Howrah locale, worked for various news associations as an independent photographic artist.

He was captured from Chandrargadi Airport in Jhapa locale while visiting Nepal from Kolkata by means of the Siligudhi and Kakarbhitta passage focuses, as per a report in the National News Agency.

During the hunt, the police recuperated 226 copies of US dollar 100 category monetary orders from his ownership, says the news report citing a cop.

Chowdhury was introduced under the watchful eye of the Jhapa District Court and later with the authorization of the court, was placed in the Jhapa prison on charges of conveying counterfeit unfamiliar cash.

Pradip Raj Wanta, leader of the National Photo Journalists Group, has required his delivery guaranteeing that he isn’t connected to any phony cash trick.
