KATHMANDU: Nepal Police has said that over 2,000 Chinese criminals are still staying in Nepal carrying out criminal activities, two days after the arrest of 122 Chinese nationals.

They are engaged in different criminal activities including cybercrimes from Kathmandu, Lalitpur, Bhaktapur, Pokhara, Chitwan and Lumbini, according to police.

On Monday, a joint police team from Nepal and China had rounded 122 Chinese nationals from different parts of Kathmandu Valley for their alleged involvement in different criminal activities.

According to a high-placed source, a Chinese team that had arrived Kathmandu some 10 days ago, had been closely watching the activities of the illegal Chinese nationals who were involved in criminal activities after arriving in Nepal on a tourist visa.

They have been accused of banking crime and online gambling among other cybercrimes in China from their hideouts in Nepal.

The source added that the Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu was directly involved in the crackdown.

China on Tuesday said its 122 citizens were arrested in Kathmandu as a part of a joint action carried out by Nepal and China.

Earlier, in the 88th Interpol General Assembly held on October 15 to 18, China’s Interpol Chief had urged IGP Sarbendra Khanal to monitor Chinese nationals saying that they are engaged in cybercrimes in Nepal.
