Media reports in Kathmandu confirm on Wednesday that the Indian paramilitary force SSB was in an organized way involved in displacing the Nepalis from the villages bordering India. About 2000 Nepalis from seven villages in the Dang district were reported chased away by the SSB.
Some victims seeking shelter in Satbariya community forest of Dang painfully disclosed the fact that the Indian force SSB members have frequently kidnapped Nepali girls and raped them. They said that the SSB men would kidnap many of the girls and disappear them for sexual purposes. In so many cases, they kept the kidnapped Nepali girls under their gun control for many weeks. The victims were reported extremely nervous and frightened. They admitted that so far hundreds of girls, who went to jungle for their domestic animals’ fodder tolerated frequent rapes for fear of losing their lives.
Villagers also said that many girls kidnapped by the SSB men have disappeared for ever. They were extrremely hopeless regarding any relief and rescue by the Nepal government.
Meanwhile Maoist-related students spontaneously took out to the streets of Kathmandu protesting against the injustice committeed by the Indian paramilitary troops. They said that all political forces must unite to safeguard Nepal’s national sovereignty and independence.
However, some leaders of the Nepali Congress and the UML told media that there was no Indian interference. Most of the Nepalis have accused them of becoming puppet rulers of India.
So far, Nepali media archives confirm that India has forcefully captured more than 60,000 hectares of Nepal’s land.
One anti-border encroachment activist from Nepal Sadhya Bahadur Bhandari told media that India is encroaching Nepal’s border not for little land but for capturing and making Nepal a Himalayan province under India.
