Nepal has opened an investigation into an Indian police couple accused of falsifying photographs to support their claim of summiting Mount Everest this year, an official says.

Key points:

Climbers investigated for fraud over alleged fake Everest photos
Pictures show the pair holding flags on summit
Mountaineers angry because couple received Everest climb certificates
Indian police constables Dinesh and Tarakeshwari Rathod earlier told reporters they reached the top of the 8,848-metre peak on May 23 but their claims were thrown into doubt after fellow climbers accused the couple of doctoring photographs of themselves on the summit.

"We have started an investigation into the Indian police couple's claim of scaling Mount Everest," said Nepal tourism chief Sudarshan Prasad Dhakal.
