Kishanganj: – A farmer was injured in the firing by the Nepal police, in the Kishanganj area, on the India-Nepal border. This becomes the second instance of firing in the border region, near Nepal. Tension reigns in the regions near the India-Nepal border, following the new border dispute dug up by Nepalese Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, publishing a new map of Nepal, under instructions from China.
The incident took place at Fatehpur in Tehragach in Kishanganj district in Bihar, near the Nepal border. The Nepal police fired at three Indian citizens and one of them is said to be critical. He has been admitted to a hospital nearby. The name of the injured farmer is Jitendra Kumar. After this incident, the villages near the border are grappled with fear. The Armed Border Security Force official informed that against this background, a meeting between the villagers and the Nepal Armed Force would be held.
Last month, one person had been killed and four others were injured, in the firing by the Nepal police at the border near Seetamadhi. The enraged villagers had held protests leaving the dead body on the Nepal border. But the border dispute has flared up between India and Nepal, since the last few days. India had warned that the Nepal government, acting under instructions from China, should not stake a claim on Indian territory. Whereas, the population of Nepal had started an agitation against their own Prime Minister. At the same time, they have accused Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli of gifting sovereign Nepalese territory to China.
