Nepal sends diplomatic note to India over Darchula incident
KATHMANDU: Nepal government on Monday sent a diplomatic note to India over Darchula tuin incident, almost two months after a Nepali man went missing into the Mahakali River.
Jay Singh Dhami of Darchula went missing after one of the members of SSB allegedly snapped the rope of an improvised cable crossing while he was trying to cross the Mahakali River on July 30.
Earlier on September 1, a probe committee formed to investigate the Darchula incident submitted a report to the government, concluding that the Indian security personnel were involved in dismantling an improvised cable crossing locally known as ‘tuin’.
The Ministry of Home Affairs had sent a letter to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs urging the latter to send a diplomatic note to the southern neighbour.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, on the basis of the same letter, sent a diplomatic letter to India.
People from various walks of life had criticised the government for remaining mute spectators to the incident.
Earlier on Thursday, Arindam Bagchi, spokesperson at the Ministry of External Affairs of India, during a regular press conference, said that the Ministry has no knowledge about the Darchula tuin incident in Nepal.
