Nepal-India border check point sealed for 60 hours

The Nepal-India check point at Kalpani, Darchula to Banbasa, Chambawat district of India will remain sealed from Monday evening to Thursday morning, for 60 hours considering the Loksabha election in Uttarakhanda, India.

The seventh series of the Loksabha election in Uttrakhanda, India will be held on May 5.

“The decision was taken at a meeting between the security officials of two countries,” said Krishna Bahadur Katwal, chief district officer of Darchula.

With the closure of the border for such a long time, locals of Darchula, Baitadi, Dadeldhura and Kanchanpur will be affected, as the locals of these districts depend on Indian bazaar.

However, the Indian security officials have said that the border might be opened for some time in between considering the problem of the locals of these districts.
