1 injured after Nepal Police opens fire on 3 Indian nationals near Bihar border

One person was injured after Nepal police allegedly shot at three Indian nationals near the border in Bihar’s Kishanganj on Sunday, the Kishanganj SP said.

The incident comes amid border row between the countries over territorial claims to Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura in Uttarakhand.

This is the second incident reported from the borders in a month. The Nepal Armed Police Force, responsible for border security, had last month opened fire on a group during a clash at a border point near Sitamarhi in Bihar, killing one Indian and injuring two others.

The injured have been admitted to hospital and an investigation is underway.
