Nepal is building new police posts along the Indo-Nepal border. Seven outposts are being built along the border about 100 km from Kheri district. Nepal is making these posts to prevent illegal infiltration, smuggling and crime on the border. Border security talks were held in the joint meetings of officers of Kheri district and officers of Nepal in Chandan Chowki. Nepal is increasing its vigil on its border. Seven new outposts are being opened on the nearly 100 km long border with Lakhimpur district.
According to Nepal officials, border outposts (BoPs) are being opened at places like Khutaghat, Latthe Ghat, Kala Kunda, Kala Patal, Lalitpur, Bagia Prasad etc. along the border with Lakhimpur Kheri in district Kailali. This will reduce the distance between the two posts and will help in curbing illegal intrusion, theft, smuggling and other crimes. It is being told that Nepal has started construction of armed police force posts. News of this is also being published in Nepal’s newspapers. SSB is also vigilant after getting this information.
