Kathmandu, May 31
The Armed Police Force personnel deployed for border security in the Sarlahi district of southeastern Nepal opened the fire in air after a group of Indian nationals tried to enter Nepal forcefully.
Around 30 Indians tried to cross the border into Bishnu rural municipality-2. When the security personnel tried to stop them, they tried to snatch away the arms, forcing police to open fire in the air to control the situation.
Chief District Officer Mohan Bahadur GC says they were smugglers trying to supply some goods illegally into Nepal. He, however, did not reveal what they were snuggling.
The incident occurred at around 6:00 am today. The situation is under control now.
