Security beefed up along Nepal-India border

NEPALGUNJ: In view of the security sensitivity for the upcoming local level elections, officials have intensified security in the no-man’s land of the Nepal-India border in Banke district.

Security at the border points has been beefed up considering that illegal arms could be brought in from no-man’s land to affect the polls scheduled for May 13.

District Police Office, Banke, said security checks had been made strict in the border area as illegal incidents could happen from India due to open border during the time of election.

Currently, security officials from both the countries are carrying out joint patrolling and stricter security checks in Jamunaha and Rupaidiya points, Deputy Superintendent of Police of Banke Madhu Sudan Neupane said.

Overall issues of security are being raised in a joint meeting of security officials taking place later today, it is said.

Banke district shares 65 kilometres of open border with the Indian side. RSS
