Nepal-India Border Conflict Intensifies as ‘849 Border Pillars Go Missing’ in Province 2!

Neighboring country India has fanned the flames alongside the borders with Nepal with 849 border marking pillars vanishing in Province 2.

It appears to be yet another instance of growing hostility and a complete disregard to the international border by India.

Eight districts of Province 2 share 464 km of border with India from Gobargadha of Saptari district in the east to Thori of Parsa district in the west.

 

According to the Armed Police Force (APF) Chhinnamasta Brigade, there are 4,027 border pillars along the border. Among them, 2,064 border pillars are intact, 704 need repair, 319 need replacement, 91 were washed away by rivers, and 849 went missing.

“We have been holding talks with our Indian counterparts from time to time for resolving the problem seen in the no-man’s land due to the missing border pillars on the international border,” said APF DIG Chandra Prakash Gautam.

The missing border markers and the encroachment on the no-man’s land make it challenging to demarcate the Nepal-India border at many places, he added.

According to DIG Gautam, the Indian citizens have encroached the no-man’s land in many districts of Province no 2, settled there, cultivated the land, and even constructed structures. Some instances are as follows:

  • Constructed huts and sheds on the no-man’s land at Inarwa Tol
  • Cultivated on the no-man’s land at Lachaka Tol in Madar
  • Encroached upon the entire no-man’s land at Lagdigoth Tol
  • Cultivated crops on the no-man’s land from Lagdi Gadiyani to Sanhaitha village
  • Constructed houses and sheds on the no-man’s land from Avaya Nagar to Thadi at Inarwa
  • Constructed the Indian customs office encroaching the border at Thadi in Siraha district
  • About 50 Indian families have been living on encroached no-man’s land at Lagdigoth of Siraha
  • Border pillar -253 has been moved 7m into the Nepali territory, and the land there has been encroached

The local administrations and representatives at the border areas have called for a scientific demarcation of the Nepal-India border. They urged the government to determine the border marker pillars through the GPS system.
