CA committee Report, India gulps Nepali landmass at several locations
Nepal’s Parliamentary Committee for International Relations and Human Rights has declared that in almost all locations along Nepal’s open border with India, Nepali territories are being illegally occupied by India. The committee points out that due to past unequal treaties signed with India, Nepal was facing trouble in its relations with India including the border encroachment problem.
The committee submitted a report to the chair of Constituent Assembly Mr. Subash Chandra Nembang, March 17, 2010, wherein it has been mentioned that along 15 districts where the parliamentary delegation made visits, it was found that India has clearly encroached upon Nepali territories.
The parliamentary delegation has made visits to 15 districts of Nepal adjoining India beginning December 25, 2009 to January 3, 2010. “After the visit, apart from Kalapani and Susta, the committee has come to the conclusion that India has indeed occupied Nepali lands at several locations.”
In Susta of Nawalparasi district, India has occupied 14 thousand hectares of Nepali Lands. Similarly, India has been illegally occupying some 62 thousand hectares of Nepali lands in Kalapani since 1962.
The committee also suggests government of Nepal to scrap the unequal treaty of 1950.
