According to Narayan Babu Thapa, Nepal’s Additional Inspector General of Police of the Armed Police Force, the incident occurred when a group of 25-30 Indians, who were trying to enter Nepal from the Indo-Nepal border in Sarlahi district, attacked the Nepalese security personnel at Narayanpur area of Parsa Rural Municipality.

“After they were stopped at the border area by the forward base of the Armed Police Force, who were deployed to enforce the lockdown in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, dozens of others joined them and pelted stones on the security personnel.

They even snatched weapons from one of our security men. After firing 10 rounds of bullets in the air, our personnel had to open fire in self-defence in which one person was killed and two others were injured,” Thapa said.

The situation is normal now and “our local commanders immediately got in touch with our Nepalese counterparts APF” said Kumar Rajesh Chandra, Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) Director General (DG).

In an unprecedented move, Nepal has started deploying its armed police force at most of the 15 border outposts on the India Nepal border.

“The new development is that Nepal has now deployed its armed police force, which is referred to as Nepal Sashastra Prahari,” said sources aware of the matter.

“The armed police force may now man the border outposts round the year,” he added. Indian security forces are now closely watching the developments on the Nepal border.

As reported earlier by EurAsian Times, Nepal’s House of Representatives unanimously approved the new political map of the country showing Lipulekh, Kalapani and Limpiyadhura as its territories.

“We are for starting dialogue soon. The problem will be resolved through diplomacy,” declared Nepal’s Foreign Minister Pradeep Kumar Gyawali.

Earlier, speaking about the claim by Nepal on the Kalapani region, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath sparked a controversy when he said: “Before determining political boundary, Nepal should think of the long-term consequences and it should also remember what happened to Tibet.”

This didn’t go down well with the Nepalese prime minister K.P. Sharma Oli who responded by condemning such comments and said that he (Adityanath) is not in a decision-making capacity in the Central government.

“His comments are inappropriate and not legitimate. He is not in a decision-making capacity in the Central government of India. His comments are in the capacity of a chief minister and these should not have been made.

If he is trying to threaten Nepal with these comments, this is condemnable. His remarks showed disrespect to Nepal. I want to tell Yogi ji that Nepal doesn’t accept these insults,” said Oli while addressing the Parliament.

This isn’t the first time when Yogi Adityanath has been wrapped up in such a debate. In 2018, when Adityanath visited Janakpur town to attend a religious event in place of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, several Nepali political leaders had objected to the visit stating that his “visit may give a religious undertone to Nepal, which is a secular state”.
