Follow up on Paras’s claim over Royal Massacre reasons

“King Birendra and Crown Prince Deependra both had liked German weapon” 

Former Crown Prince Paras Shah has claimed that the then King Birendra and the then Crown Prince Deependra had differences over the choice of German rifle or American rifle for the Nepal Army (NA). He, one of the witnesses of the dreadful royal massacre in 2001, further claimed that the differences over the multimillion dollar arms deal instigated the crown prince to assassin his father and the rest of the family before killing himself. Is this the truth? “No,” says Bibek Kumar Shah, the army secretary at the Royal Palace at the time of massacre, “It is completely untrue to say that there was rift between King Birendra and Prince Deependra regarding the purchase of German G36 rifle.”
