Indian police in the areas bordering Western Nepal are reported to have been involved in massive robbery against Nepali workers, who return to Nepal from India.
According to BBC Nepali Service, dozens of Nepali workers have complained of atrocities by Indian police in the frontiers.
According to reports, Indian police abduct Nepali workers, loot all their earnings and torture them ruthlessly. Some workers even complained that Indian police abducted women while they severely beat and looted men.
Indian police at Indo-Nepal border at Banbasa are reported to have accused Nepali workers of being “Maoist terrorists.”
Meanwhile local inhabitants in Dhangadhi have expressed a high level discontent at the indifference so far the Nepali government has maintained to Indian police terrorism.
As the criminal actions of the Indian police in the border areas appear politically motivated, political forces of both Nepal and India need to pay urgent attention to this issue.
