Nepal-India border to be closed from Feb 12-14


Kathmandu: Ahead of assembly elections in Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh, the India-Nepal border in the adjoining areas would be closed from February 12 to 14.

During a joint meeting of representatives of administrations and security officials from both the countries it was decided to close the border areas and beef up the security vigilance during the period.

However, an agreement has been made to allow the citizens of third countries to cross the Nepal-India border based on their documents, said Superintendent of Police Prakash Bahadur Chand of District Police Office, Kanchanpur.

SP Chand said the highly-essential vehicles would be allowed to ply only from the legal entry points.
