BHADRAPUR: The Armed Police Force (APF) has set up several temporary posts at the Nepal-India border in Jhapa in a bid to strictly implement lockdown and stop the illegal entry.

The APF has tightened the security at the border in Jhapa district by setting up additional 58 temporary posts.

It already had eight posts in Jhapa bordering India. The posts are makeshift ones, according to Superintendent of the Armed Police at Bhadrapur, Umesh Kumar Thaksu.

The APF has been able to curb crimes at the border such as poaching, drug trafficking, and illegal entry of people.

Thaksu stated that the APF has also increased its alertness on the border areas as people died of COVID-19 in India’s Bihar and West Bengal bordering Nepal.

Those entering Nepal surreptitiously could pose threat to spread of the virus.

There were already 250 security persons on duty and the number is increased by 100 now.

Since the lockdown, it was reported that 26 persons entered Nepal via Bahundangi, Bhadrapur, Kechana, Gaurigunj, Taghandubba, among others.

They have been taken under control and kept in quarantine, said Krishna Prasad Koirala, Superintendent of Nepal Police at district. As the locals here have been aware, they began informing the police, which is helpful to trace trespasser.

Meanwhile, with the reports of poaching and wildfire, the Division Forest Office Jhapa has banned people from entering the forest.

Office chief Bishnu Lal Ghimire informed that the people’s entry into the community and lease forests was banned after wildfire and poaching reports.
