Bumthang District Court

The Bumthang District Court has sentenced a man to two years and six months in prison for criminal solicitation.

The court found the man guilty of the crime of solicitation of burglary and arson. The convict hired two other men and paid them Nu 35,000 to steal antiques from Samtenling Nagtshang in Chumey Gewog in Bumthang. He had asked the men to set the monastery on fire after stealing.

The man was also convicted in the Jambay Lhakhang cat-eye larceny case in May last year. He committed the crime of solicitation while he was released on bail for the cat-eye case.

Of the two accomplices, one has been awarded a prison term of five years, while the other has been sentenced to two and a half years in prison.
