KATHMANDU: Minister for Home Affairs Ram Bahadur Thapa has said that India has encroached Nepal’s border extending to 372 kilometers.

Minister Thapa said so on Friday during a meeting called by the International Relations Committee of Parliament to discuss the inclusion of Nepali lands including Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limiyadhura in the new political map unveiled by India.

He added that Nepal has mobilized border security forces for the protection of Nepali lands, but it is not enough.

Informing the House panel that 37,000 Armed Police Force personnel have been mobilized for the border security, Minister Thapa said the number was insufficient.

He said that the number of border security forces will be increased, adding that 70 new border outposts are being added.
