By N24 Correspondent, KATHMANDU:- The Belahiya-Sunauli Customs Point between Nepal and India came to a standstill for two hours, as Nepali citizens protested the regular misbehavior and misdemeanor of the Indian Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) against Nepali shoppers, who cross the border for a short trip.
“The SSB chases us away by letting loose their dogs on us, snatching the goods we buy in Sunauli and by using abusive words against us,” said a victim, who went to Sunauli to buy some clothes for a wedding.
“I had to buy some goods and as I was about to enter India’s gate, the SSB let lose their dog on me. I had to run away. But my Nepali brothers and sisters could not resist this heinous misbehavior. As a consequence, a huge protest was carried out at the border,” said Muna Bhandari, who lives in Tilottama in Rupandehi district, Nepal.
A clash between Nepali protesters and the SSB personnel was about to happen but Nepal Police intervened in the mean time and averted the clash.
“Nepalis have to show identity card while crossing the Indian border but Indians don’t have to show their cards. Even when we show our IDs, we have to face the torture at the hands of the Indian SSB,” said a shopper from Arghakhanchi, Nepal.
“It was my off from work today and I was here for a visit. I could not resist the insult of a Nepali sister at the hands of the Indian SSB. That’s why I also participated in the protest” said Shankar Neupane of Gulmi district.
“We pay money to buy goods from India. Still, we have to come across insult. This situation has to come to an end. Nepal’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has to do something in regard to this critical issue,” he added.
