SAPTARI:  Youths from Sakhada village of Chhinnamasta Rural Municipality-3 in the district have increased vigilance to control the illegal entry of any person from India in the wake of the growing cases of coronavirus infection in State-2.

Ten youths from the village have been staying alert against the illegal entry and smuggling. The illegal entry at night is for supplying liquor.

“Although the country border is closed in view of the lockdown to contain the COVID-19, the illegal entry and smuggling did not stop.

So, the night time vigil was begun,” said Dipendra Kumar Yadav, Chairperson of Ward No 3 from the Rural Municipality, adding, “Smuggling has increased infection risk.

Those entered illegally are caught and made to promise not to enter again.” Team coordinator Mithilesh Yadav said as the people sleep after an evening meal, the youths leave for vigilance at the border and return home early morning.

Their vigilance at the border has stopped Indian people from entering Nepal to trade illegal liquor. The youths have also taken the help of the Armed Police Force in this regard.

The Indian youths enter Nepal in a group of five to ten persons for trading illegal liquor. The smugglers even carry weapons, so the youths take help from the police.
