KATHMANDU: A recent inspection of the Lapcha-Limi region of Humla from August 30 to September 9 by Assistant Chief District Officer Dalbahadur Hamal of Humla has revealed that China has constructed nine buildings on the Nepali territory.
A media report quoting a source close to district administration said that the team of assistant CDO Hamal went for observation after locals brought the news of the unauthorized buildings constructed by China.
The Lapcha-Lipu region does not enjoy the presence of state because of its remoteness from the district headquarters.
District Administration Office Humla has reported about the encroachment to the Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA), and the case has already been forwarded to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA).
A member of the monitoring team maintaining anonymity said, “We could see the buildings from a distance. We had heard rumors about a building being constructed by China there but found eight more in our visit.”
The report added that after the inspection by assistant CDO Hamal, a team comprising CDO Chiranjeevi Giri and the heads of all four security bodies have gone to Lapcha. As per the information received, the team will return in a week.
