The former Crown Prince of Nepal has been arrested after firing a pistol during a row in a hotel restaurant.
Paras Shah, who was heir to the throne until the monarchy was abolished in 2008, says he fired a shot in the air because someone had insulted his relatives.
However Rubel Chaudhary, the son-in-law of the deputy prime minister, accused the former prince of threatening to kill him, the BBC reports.
A home ministry official told AFP Mr Shah would be charged with using a firearm in a public place.
The monarchy plunged into crisis after nine royals died in a 2001 massacre, the BBC reports. The 240-year-old monarchy was eventually abolished in 2008 after former Maoist rebels came to power.
The same year, Mr Shah moved to Singapore with his family.
