Nepal's former Crown Prince Paras has arrived here, a source said yesterday, as speculation was rife that he was planning to abandon his homeland for good.

Mr.Paras, 36, boarded a silk air flight to Singapore on Tuesday, according to a senior airport security official in Nepal, after initial reports said he had taken a flight to Bangkok.

It was not clear where Mr. Paras was staying . A check by AFP of several luxury hotels in the city-state showed nobody registered under his name.

When asked by journalists as he entered Kathmandu airport if he planned to return, Mr Paras smiled and made no comment.

One Nepalese news paper reported on Monday that he was leaving for Singapore and would call for his family to join him after two weeks.

On Tuesday, another publication, The Himalayan Times. said the ex-prince was headed to Singapore to find a school and home for his three children and wife, but that he would not be living in the city-state himself.

It is said that Mr. Paras was concerned for the safety of his family following the end of the 240-year-old monarchy in Nepal and the withdrawal of all royal privileges.

Mr Paras' father King Gyanendra, became the last of the Shah dynasty on May 28 when a Maoist-dominated assembly elected in April decided to declare the country a republic.

Mr Paras has been unpopular for years in Nepal where his reputation for enjoying the high life was not well viewed in the predominantly Hindu, conservative and impoverished nation, Nepal..
