The government is immediately sending an armed team to the area to protect the border.
It is said that 25 armed policemen will be deployed at the border monitoring post. According to Dambar Bahadur Bista, Deputy Superintendent of Armed Police Force, Armed Police Force, Nepal No. 50, a team of 25 people led by Inspector Mili Bahadur Chand has gone there today. Although the government had decided to set up a BOP here last November, it had not been established yet.
At that time, there were 107 BOPs of the Armed Police in the border area. In November, the government had decided to set up 114 BOPs. After that, BOPs were established in only 13 places, said Pravin Kumar Shrestha, spokesperson of the Armed Police Force Nepal.
