BEDKOT, April 27: The structures built illegally by encroaching upon the no-man's land along the Nepal-India border in Kanchanpur district are being removed.
In this connection, the illegal structures constructed on the no-man's land along the border under Dodhara Chandani Municipality are being dismantled and removed, said Kishor Limbu, the municipality's mayor.
According to him, the removal of the structures built by encroaching upon the border has been started from Baduwal Tol of Dodhara Chandani-3. "The work of removing the illegal structure built on the no-man's land along the border has been started and we have removed the illegal structures along one and a half kilometers long stretch on the first day. It will continue," he said.
The work of removing illegal occupation of the no-man's land is being carried out at the joint initiative of the Armed Police Force, Nepal Police, the Indian Seema Suraksha Bal (SSB) and the people’s elected representatives, among other stakeholders.
People have grown crops and constructed illegal structures on the no-man's land along the Nepal-India international border in Dodhara Chandani.
As a result, disputes broke out among the people on both sides of the border, one side accusing the other of encroaching upon their land. The municipality hopes this problem will be resolved with the clearing of the no-man's land.
Kanchanpur shares a 129.5 kilometers long border with India.
